Book design, production, printing 


Designed as the third issue of Codex: the Journal of Letterforms, this book is a true hybrid, starting life as a magazine and ending as a book. Working with editor Paul Shaw and packager Scott-Martin Kosofsky, the MIT press published this essential tome dedicated to the vast impact and influence of the Roman capital letter. The book is illustrated with a wide range of font specimens, sculptural inscriptions, sketches and original rubbings, photographs of historic individuals and the work of many type designers.
