A Compilation of Contemporary Letter Designs
This collection brings together letter designs by Katsumi Tsuji, a graphic designer who was active in the Taishō and Shōwa periods in Japan.
A reprint of 1934's original edition, the work in this petite book — which spans different world scripts and includes a range of ornaments and logos — retains an elegance and vivacity, and remains an inspiration, bringing together flowery Victoriana and classic models as well as art deco typestyles and modern forms. The range in this dense volume is diverse, revealing Tsuji's skill and breadth of practice and serving as an early twentieth-century lettering treasury.
