* recently discovered “lettering ( a guide for teachers )” from 1958 in a used bookstore along with a couple other type books – from the foreword : “because basic letter forms are more-or-less fixed by precedent and tradition, one could rationalize that there is little opportunity in lettering for aesthetic expression and personal interpretation. yet, a study of the work of our best calligraphers and type designers gives us ample evidence that there is considerable area of prerogative where the artist may leave the stamp of his own personality and purpose” _d. k. winebrenner //
