Product Description

Markings

THE TEXT of this book was set in a typeface called

Primer, designed by RUDOLPH RUZICKA for the Mergen- thaler Linotype Company and first made available in 1949. Primer, a modified modern face based on Century broadface, has the virtue of great legibility and was de- signed especially for today's methods of composition and printing. Primer is Ruzicka's third typeface. In 1940 he designed Fairfield, and in 1947 Fairfield Medium, both for the Mergenthaler Linotype Company. Ruzicka was born in Bohemia in 1883 and came to the United States at the age of eleven. He attended public schools in Chicago and later the Chicago Art Institute. During his long career he has been a wood engraver, etcher, cartographer, and book designer. For many years he was associated with Daniel Berkeley Updike and pro- duced the annual keepsakes for The Merrymount Press from 1911 until 1941. Ruzicka has been honoured by many distinguished organisations, and in 1936 he was awarded the gold medal of the American Institute of Graphic Arts. From his home in New Hampshire, Ruzicka continues to be active in the graphic arts.
