Indices : Books : The Trajan Capitals

This small book is an outgrowth of the reproductions of the Trajan Capitals in Frederic Goudy's own The Alphabet and Elements of Lettering. In the introduction to this book, the author reveals his lack of enthusiasm for the drawings he did in the aforementioned book(s) and took the opportunity to revisit his drawings, with brief commentary. The text is accompanied by the letters reproduced by wood block printing in cool grey ink. It is set in his own Bertham type (his 100th, designed that same year) and dedicated to his wife.
