The incorporation of lettering into the architectural pattern of a building is a practice with a long and honourable history.  This book shows, with 300 illustrations, how lettering has traditionally been used in architecture and indicates the range of remarkably flexible and subtle letterforms that are available and suitable for use by architetcts today.  All the examples are drawn from Italy and Britian – the two countries where the tradition is at its most relevant and where the legacy is at its richest.  Hardback in original dust-jacket.  No inscriptions, underlining or annotations.  Dust-jacket slightly worn, with some light foxing.  Top edge of text block slightly foxed, otherwise very good
