Love Letters: A Gallery of Type

Love Letters celebrates type, typographers, and printers – from Johann Gutenberg, who developed printing with movable type, to Bruce Rogers, an American typographer and book designer. Type is designed to be both functional and evocative. Type has personality, flair, and style, inspired by time and place. It can age quickly or become classic. Good type grabs our attention.
