An indispensable guide to hundreds of important modern versions of earlier typefaces, presenting clear and concise discussions of origins, permutations, and contemporary digital availability.

For typographers, revival type forms an integral part of their font repertoire. Older classics such as Baskerville, Garamond, and Bodoni are imbedded fonts in standard operating system collections and continue to serve their users well, being the trusted go-to tools of the best professional designers.

Yet all revivals are digital interpretations of lost originals. In almost every case, there is, and has to be, considerable selection, revising, and re-formatting involved. The nature of such work is little understood or appreciated.

The definition, application, and use of type revivals has been neglected until now. No one selecting a typeface, or using type, should be without Jerry Kelly’s Type Revivals.
