Typefaces from Europe 1948

16 Jun

These are pages from a Parisian book printed in 1948 that dissects typography. I’m thinking someone should turn these into a working typeface 🙂

    nice. the text on the first page is german, so maybe it’s not parisien, but from Mannheim-Neckarau. 🙂

      Interesting..the source had said they were from a Parisian book on type. Hmm. I wonder if it was published in Germany and is a collection of typefaces from around Europe? Either way, I like it! : )
