"Rudolph Koch (1876-1934) was one of the foremost typographers, type designers, and letterers in Germany during the early 20th century... This important biographical study of Koch and his work is the first authoritative reference to appear in English... This comprehensive, well-written biography is illustrated with over 300 reproductions, many seen here for the first time in decades. Author Gerald Cinamon chronicles Koch's life almost month by month and includes numerous articles written by Koch but never published in English." -- front flap of book cover Contents -- Acknowledgements -- Foreword / Harmann Zapf -- Rudolf Koch: Life, Work and Selected Writings -- 1: The Typefaces of Rudolf Koch -- 2: The Manuscript Books of Rudolf Koch (1908-21) -- 3: The Writings of Rudolf Koch -- 4: Bibliography of the Rudolfinische Drucke -- 5: Paul Koch -- 6: Bibliography -- 7: Finding Rudolf Koch's Grave at Frankfurt Overrad -- Sources of Illustrations -- Index
