I have been authorized by my friend Alan Stark (marketing director of the
publisher Hartley & Marks) to append the following information about a
book of interest to this group that is being re-published this spring
(this is an elaboration of Alan's original append some weeks ago):
Dowding: Finer Points in the Spacing and Arrangement of Type.
A significant revision of a long-unavailable classic manual that offers
in-depth investigations of every aspect of the use of type and space, from
letter and word arrangement to the design of type itself, to how type and
space affect each other in publication and advertising design. It is one
in the same a readable, absorbing and provocative book by an expert
English typographer who served as an instructor of typographic design at
the London College of Printing for over twenty years. Due out in paperback
in April from Harley & Marks for $14.95, ISBN 0-88179-119-9. Call
Disclaimer: as stated above, an acquaintance with the marketing guy; but
no financial interest in H & M. But I do wish them success in publishing
books about typography and printing.
