Letters and Lettering, 1938

While visiting family over the holidays, I stopped into one of my favorite used bookstores, and ended-up with a few spectacular finds. Including this 1938 type style / specimen book by Paul Carlyle and Guy Oring. It's a hardcover Wire-O / double-loop bound book, printed two-colors on cover weight uncoated paper stock. The specimen is around 130-pages of typographic goodness, and I photographed a sampling of 36-pages for your historical enjoyment.
