This is a well designed type specimen book displaying samples of type that was available from V&M Typographic in the 1970s. The displays are of their metal type library and should prove helpful to anyone interested in the selection of type from large typographers at that time. There is a one line sample of each face at the beginning of the book. Anyone interested in type in the pre-digital world of type should find this book of interest
