Fifty Type Specimens from the Collection of Tobias Frere-Jones
A collection of fifty postcards with stunning images of typography, for inspiration, correspondence, or display. Cards feature classic letterforms, pages from specimen books, and crops of gorgeous letters presented in a box with the feel of an old specimen book. Historic typefaces, selected by renowned designer and type aficionado Tobias Frere-Jones, are organized into four geographic categories by thumb tabs: Germany, France, United States, and the United Kingdom.
A perfect gift for yourself, friends or family—anyone who enjoys letterforms and typographic history. The cards, drawn from Frere-Jones's mammoth collection of over 300 specimen books, can be used for display, inspiration or as actual postcards.
