After World War II there was a sharp increase in Japan of printed materials, notices, and signboards in foreign languages, particularly English. Seen everywhere, they were so prolific that foreign languages became an aspect of everyday life for the Japanese. The English letter styles in the various printed materials reflect delicate beauty, lightly rhymical lines, and dignified formal arrangements. Originally published in 1967, this book is composed of a main section of alphabet and number fonts used for both practical and ornamental purposes, and a smaller section on opposing pages containing monograms formed from combinations of letters and numbers in a variety of angles.
