Gress, Edmund G. Fashions in American Typography, 1780 to 1930 with Brief Illustrated Stories of the Life and Environment of the American People in Seven Periods. New York: Harper & Brothers, 1931. Gress covers “the various periods at which decided changes in the matter of type design or changed tastes in type arrangement took place.” I’ve had this one for a while but just recently dug into it. Pretty interesting to read about each typographic movement from a 1930 perspective. Plenty examples shown of both typefaces and typesetting.
I'll leave it to James to disclose budget and goals about the upcoming year, but the money raised in 2014–15 was almost exactly the amount needed to cover 27 months of forum service fees (the period of my ownership). Those funds run out this month. I don't think anyone is under the illusion that TD is a profit-making enterprise, but I hope James and Tiffany can raise a bit more than we did last time so there is a bit of compensation for their time.
