Australian Typefounders Specimens

A Survey of Australian Typefounders' Specimens by Dennis Bryans, published 2014 by the Gloden Point Press, Victoria.

For the first time this book shows previously unrecognised specimens of typographic designs preserved by the State Archives of South Australia. Specimens first mentioned in the New South Wales press more than 150 years ago. THe skills and workmanship exhibited by Australia's pioneer typefounders in these specimens presents a vital source of information for future print historians. Additional material has been provided by descendents of typefounders and is added to from the collections of the Powerhouse Museum; State Records New South Wales; Public Records Office Victoria and the State Library of Victoria.
