Irish Type Design, Dermot McGuinne (second edition 2010)



“This attractive book traces Irish faces from Queen Elizabeth’s first Irish type of 1571 to the faces designed for mechanical composition on Monotype and Linotype machines…Irish Type Design is to be welcomed for its history both of type design and of the development of Irish printing” Peter Isaac Wyla, Rare Books Newsletter [No. 46, March 1994, London pp. 61-62]
