DURING the past decade we have witnessed a remarkable improvement in the typography of books, although in large part this has been confined to the design of typefaces rather than to the design of the books themselves. “Cold type” has undoubtedly become far more legible and far more aesthetic than it had been for many years. Correct use of type by the printer is, however, as important as its manufacture; hence the benefits we should derive from the improvement vary from book to book according to the degree of craftsmanship of the printers.
