The Playbook by Barbara Henry

$400.00 - Please contact 23 Sandy for current availability.
Th Playbook is a result of my interest in the history of the alphabet, a childhood experience with Greek, and my visits to The Whittington Press, whose vast collection of Monotype matrices extends to eths and thorns. Setting type is the most appealing part of the letterpress process for me, and invites the kind of reverie that causes me to wonder: how would a theta fit into English composition?
