Typography: love and hate



Well here's a clash of love and hate. These are sheets stapled into the front of a specimen type book from the 1930s published by Associated Newspapers, the proprietors of The Daily Mail. So in this book comes face to face my love of type specimen books and my visceral loathing of The Daily Mail and all it stands for... I suppose I might draw some comfort from the fact that The Daily Mail then wasn't quite the thing it is today.
