The Handy Book of Artistic Printing: A Collection of Letterpress Examples
To support the TDC, I also purchased an old annual from 1987. The pages are filled with designs by Louise Fili, Carin Goldberg, and Charles Spencer Anderson (pre- csadesign).
The TDC table also had a large stack of old type specimen books for ITC. I bought only two—betting that someone will buy up the rest of the pile of 70s style specimens. (in April I attended the Ed Benguiat talk, so this swayed what I picked up)
