B4021. Brilliant History of Color in Art / Finlay
B4021. The Brilliant History of Color in Art by Victoria Finlay. 2014. 128pp. 9"x10.15". Hardcover

This is no dry discussion of pigments, but rather an engaging and entertaining exploration around the colors artist use and how they came to be. The author tells of Cleopatra and purple, Napoleon and the graphite pencil, cobalt blue and forged Vermeers, and much more as she brings us into her quest to uncover the origins and science of color. All is related in the warm conversational style that helped make Finlay’s earlier book on color so popular. But unlike that earlier book, this rich narrative is illustrated in full-color throughout - with 166 major works of art, most from the collections of the Getty Museum.

B4122. Palatino: The Natural History of a Typeface
Palatino: The Natural History of a Typeface by Robert Bringhurst. 2016. 296pp. 5.6"x9". Hardcover

Robert Bringhurst takes Palatino, probably the most widely known and used of all Hermann Zapf faces, and traces its development and its history as it transforms from hot metal, through the brief interlude of film setting, and finally into the digital world, with all the permutations, refinements, and its imitations. Included with the text are over 200 illustrations – design sketches, working drawings, smoke proofs and test prints, matrices, foundry and Linotype patterns – all printed in five colors. Covers Palatino and its extended family: foundry and Linotype, Michelangelo, Sistina, Aldus, Heraklit, Phidias, Zapf Renaissance, and PostScript Palatino, Aldus Nova, and Palatino Sans.

The book is an argument, and a convincing one, that artists who create letters can, and should, be judged by the same standards and held in the same esteem as composers who write music and artists who paint on canvas. Bringhurst asks the question, "Can a penstroke or a letterform be so beautiful it will stop you in your tracks and maybe break your heart?" In this groundbreaking, seminal and totally original book, issued in an edition of 1,000 copies, he answers the question: "It can."

Accompanying the book is an eight-page signature, printed letterpress directly from handset foundry and Linotype hot metal type by Jerry Kelly.
