This booklet noted the lack of adequate facsimiles of Humanistic writing manuals, and sought to encourage their publication, since the originals were so rare. John Ryder was one of the foremost British book designers of the late twentieth century, dedicated to typographical excellence, legibility, and the well-made book. In 1957, Ryder joined The Bodley Head where he had a thirty-year career as art director, establishing his reputation as a book designer.
