New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I'm writing a thesis about the typography and readability/legibility of contemporary bible editions.
Of course I also want to take into account what has been achieved in bible printing in history and try to compare where there are improvements and where there is worsening of typography and readability/legibility between former editions and editions of today.
In my research I found a reference to the book/series "The bible as Book: the first printed editions", van Kampen et al. by Paul Saenger.
I didn't see what's written in it, because I cannot get the book here.
Maybe I should consider buying it - and therefore I need someones help:
Does anybody know this book or the entire series?
Or the authors?
And: Maybe someone has good advice for additional literature?
thank you for any help
