I have that book, having picked it up on a whim when I was in London recently. It's real cute! It makes me want to buy and use the Shire Types pretty bad!

Quite apart from the nice showings of Jeremy's types, the book is worth getting for Catherine Dixon's essay on the history of type specimens. I like very much the idea of using a type specimen book as a vehicle for such an essay, rather than just a marketing piece. Inspiring.

Tankard's web site doesn't say how to get the specimen book. Does anyone know?

William there are links in the Review maybe one of them will lead you to a purchase site.

The link is to Tankard's site, which does not have information that I can see, including in the newsletter that mentions the printing of the specimen book.

I've also been pulling my hair out trying to get a copy. I sent an e-mail to Tankard's site a little while back requesting information on where/how to purchase the book, but never received a response.

Just got a group e-mail from Tankard saying he had been away and hadn't anticipated the review and the interest it stirred.

The book will be included with all online/direct sales and otherwise will be 7.95 pounds sterling.

He will e-mail a PDF orderform to those interested.

Received my copy in the mail today. Some super nice stuff inside. Have not got a chance to read the essay yet.
