Scope and content

Created by Terry Irwin and Leah Hoffmitz Milken for Letterform Design, the portfolio "gives a brief analysis of six major type classifications from a historical perspective, each of which is designed and typeset in the style of the period." A folder for the poster set was also designed. Includes a paste-up of the cover, negatives of four of the posters, and multiple complete sets (folder and poster).
