The Aries Press was an American private press founded by Spencer Kellogg, Jr., in the 1920s. A second-generation millionaire and supporter of the arts, Kellogg was influenced by the Arts and Crafts movement. Though little known today, the Aries Press produced exceptional examples of fine printing. Richard Kegler documents its colorful history accompanied by fine illustrations and samples from the Press.

The Bentons

The ease with which we can choose a typeface today from a plethora of options to fit a particular need is something we may take for granted, but it is possible only because of the tremendous amount of labor and ingenuity that came before. The story of the lives and work of Linn Boyd Benton and Morris Fuller Benton is an important chapter in the history of type, recalling a time in American history when men quietly worked at developing and improving mechanical technologies that they thought would continue evolving incrementally into the future.

Foreword by Matthew Carter.

This book is about designs born of necessity; often spontaneously, always pragmatically. It is also about the particular sensibility of graphic designer George Tscherny and his ability to find beauty or art in the most ordinary things, and to communicate this appreciation to others. Experience his infectious enthusiasm for what could be called "anonymous", "ad hoc", or "vernacular" design; for objects that have an aesthetic appeal in spite of themselves; for creations that are both ingenious and ingenuous.
