James Mosley Blogging at Typefoundry

Bodoni specimen from James Mosley's well-illustrated and consistently interesting blog.
Many readers may already be aware of this, but James Mosley (retired Librarian of St. Bride’s Printing Library) has been posting about the history of typography for some time at Typefoundry. His most recent post, The Trieste leaf: a Bodoni forgery? is a great example of Mosley’s erudition and engaging writing. If you care about the history of typography at all, Typefoundry is must reading.
