Counterpunch is packed with ideas. It is both an investigation into the techniques of making metal type by hand, and a consideration of present questions in type design. The discussion takes in the fundamentals of designing and making letters, so that the book can be read as a guide to type and font construction in any medium. Lively, pointed drawings and photographs complement the fresh text. This is a second edition, set in a new typeface by Smeijers.
