Renowned designers Steven Heller and Louise Fili have recently co-authored and published a book titled “Scripts: Elegant Lettering from Design’s Golden Age”. The book focuses on various examples of typography advertising, street signs, invitations, type-specimen books, personal letters from the 19th and 20th Century.
“Scripts is a celebration of script letters, alphabets and fonts from classical to modern, from Italy, France, Germany, England and the United States. It is a collection of all manner of ephemera in which scripts play a prominent role.”
– Steven Heller (taken from an interview on the Thames & Hudson blog)
