Edward Johnston

Assigned to write a critical history of a typographer, I chose Edward Johnston, designer of the type for the London Underground. The book contains a biography of Johnston’s life and an examination of the design of the type, situated in the design’s historical context. The project consists of writing the book’s text, design and typesetting of the page, and bookbinding.
