Practical Hand-Drawn Characters
Second in a series of reprints of hand-drawn character designs from the Taisho and Showa eras.

In an era before computers and transcription, and before typography and lettering were even invented in Japan, designers who were active in the cadegory of commercial art drew letters by hand to match words and media (leaflets, flyers, signboards, posters, etc.). They were drawn by hand, one letter at a time, to match the words and media (leaflets, flyers, billboards, posters, etc.).
The world of letters is different from today's world, full of originality and power.
*Includes more than 500 designs of hand-drawn letters!
*A source of ideas for typefaces and logos!
  *This book is a practical guide to the world of letterforms;
*This book is a complete collection and reorganization of the practical design characters from [Practical Design Characters and Designs] (Taisho 15, written by Masahiro Anesaki).
