New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
Books on the subject of corporate identity and its history, as books about the history of type, are plentiful. But I am looking for some suggestions to books on the history of corporate type, and I havent't really found anything yet. But then, perhaps it's not a book I need but a quick dig into the collective knowledge base that is Typophile.
If, by a corporate typeface, I mean a typeface commissioned, made and used exclusively for a commercial entity or organization, then who made and used the first one? Was it the Romain du roi?
What are your favorites through history?
