graphic design and the Portland Room

Among our niche collections in the Portland Room is an array of publications on the book arts and printing. We are welcoming more and more art students and designers to this part of the Library, as a resource for visual art processes.  Here are two selections on the topic of typographic design, old and and new!

Bocaccio frontispiece, as reproduced in the book, Early Venetian Printing : Illustrated (655.1 058 Art)

an expressive use of type forms, spelling “Jazz,” from Emil Ruder’s book “Typography : A Manual of Design” (655.2 R915-t Art).
