The world’s leading expert on letterforms and their relationship to writing and handwriting, Rosemary Sassoon has had a long career as a scholar, teacher, and writer. This book charts that career from her early, very formal training in letterforms to the more free and creative work that she does with her students today. Filled with images of different types of lettering, and featuring work from Sassoon’s Italian and Australian students, Lettering from Formal to Informal is an approachable, personal whistle-stop tour of the development of lettering from the early twentieth century to our ever-more-digital present.
