Bruce Rogers: A Life in Letters, 1870–1957

Bruce Rogers designed Centaur (one of the well-known humanist typefaces) and responsible for classic book design including works from Shakespeare and the Bible. As one of Rogers’s apprentices, Joseph Blumenthal collected the letters Rogers had written and presented in a form of an autobiographical; therefore, the subtitle of this book not only refers to the typographic letters, but also the actual written letters. The book is set in Monotype Centaur and printed on Mohawk Superfine paper. Needless to say, it’s an insightful, beautiful read.
