Again a nice lettering book published by Korero Press London, and edited by Rian Hughes.

About Custom Lettering of the 20s and 30s

The 20s and 30s were the time when lettering and handwritten fonts were most popular and graphic design began to sprout from the soil as an own profession. High-circulation newspapers and magazines began to flourish along with improved printing techniques. Larger illustrations and engravings were elaborated and superseded the mostly awkward hand-set wooden and metal type. Foundry type was used for more mundane aspects of business printing and a long tradition of handlettering droped out because of the exclusive and exciting design it has.

This book is showing the power and beauty of 20s and 30s lettering art on over 500 pages. You will surely get your inspirational satiety when having it.
