Bruce Rogers was an American typographer and type designer, acclaimed by some as among the greatest book designers of the twentieth century. Rogers was known for his "classical" style of design, rejecting modernism, never using asymmetrical arrangements, rarely using sans serif type faces, favoring solid roman faces such as Caslon and his own Centaur. His books now fetch high sums at auction.

Gray cloth, spine titled in gilt, dust-jacket in archival mylar; binding square and tight, corners bumped, jacket soiled. Very Good. With a quick glance at ancient inscriptions, this book studies the development of the inscription - a text composed with a view to its being presented in lines of different lengths, the lineation contributing to or enhancing the meaning, so that someone who does not see it, actually, or in the mind's eye, misses something of the intended effect - as a literary form in Renaissance and post-Renaissance Europe.
