London bookshop Collinge & Clark has an archive of Stephenson Blake drawings and correspondence. I got a kick out of reading E.B. Hanson’s typewritten reactions to SB’s suggestions. Things moved slower back then.

    Socratic method?
  • I loved seeing this! Especially after working this afternoon to revise a type design based on feedback sent to me by a fellow designer in a list rather similar to this. A century later things aren't all that different (though our email exchanges never ended with "I remain, yours obediently")!
