It contains reproductions ranging from ancient and medieval manuscripts to the earliest printed books to the works of some of the twentieth-century's most important and interesting authors, artists, and designers. This work is intended not merely to celebrate the achievement of the past, but also to suggest the exciting vistas of the future.
