The business of Stephenson Blake and Company grew from modest beginnings in 1818 into a business that dominated the typefounding industry in Britain. Roy Millington charts the history of this typefoundery, with particular focus on the changing technical and social milieu in which the company operated. Illustrated with examples of typefaces, display specimens and the machinery of personalities of the company, this thorough account of a traditional manufacturing business should appeal to anyone interested in typographical or printing history.
