Written to commemorate Stanley Morison and Walter Lewis and the impact they had on each other, and upon the author. "The royal octavo format suited the selected illustrations, including pages from books produced by Morison and Lewis in partnership - or not produced in the case of the abortive Cambridge type catalogue. It also provided a rare opportunity to showing off the Barbou type which then still existed only in the 'English' size used in the last three volumes of The Fleuron."
