Monograph 5 (Evolution), traces the evolution of books from papyrus rolls to the early Renaissance. No. 6. (Revolution) examines the progressive decline of book production, and No. 7 (Regulation) 'discussed the drive for rationalisation of techniques at the expense of the creative potential of authorship' [Jarvis, The Wayzgoose Affair p. 150]. No. 8 (Re-Evaluation) 'weighed the benefits to text and reader of an individual and creative approach to book design, typography and illustrations against the losses inflicted by mass production principles' [The Wayzgoose Affair, p. 152]. The large coloured initials form the word 'font', which also features in the endpaper design. Item #135214
