This is a printing office, cross-roads of civilization, refuge of all the arts against the ravages of time, armoury of fearless truth against whispering rumour, incessant trumpet of trade. From this place words may fly abroad, not to perish as waves of sound but fixed in time, not corrupted by the hurrying hand but verified in proof. Friend, this is a printing office. ~Beatrice Warde, “First Lady of Typography,” 1932, written upon the issuance of typeface designer Eric Gill’s Perpetua Tilting series
