LESSON 02

4.99

This twenty-seven page lesson serves as an overview of the alphabet from A to Z. Letterform specimens from alphabets designed by such masters as the 16th century Parisian, Claude Garamond, the 19th century Italian master, Giambattista Bodoni, and the 20th century’s Swiss type design innovator Max Miedinger (Helvetica), all clearly represent milestones in typographic anatomy. Specific to their era, these alphabets actually reflect a visual history of the English alphabet. Potential origins of each letterform along with early Greek renderings, illustrate the defining changes of our twenty-six character alphabet. Print as a handout or project for a lecture. Download is compatible with Adobe Acrobat 5 and later.
