The Reviews Are In!
See what noted reviewers, book critics, and publications are saying about Oak Knoll titles:
"A definitive and deeply researched history of LEC was long overdue...absorbing, highly enjoyable, and finely written...Bibliophiles will take pleasure in looking at and handling Grossman's book for the warmth and charm of its production."
"Collectors, booksellers, cultural historians and librarians are the target audience of Robert Thake's scrupulous, meticulous, sumptuously produced and painstakingly researched biography of a book . . . Thake is omniscient and his lusciously illustrated book a model of scholarship."
- David Coward,
"Carol Twombly... has been billed as 'the first book on type design centered around the career of one woman.' I would argue that it is more important than that. It is the first full-length biography of a type designer of the digital era - man or woman. ... an essential addition to the bookshelves of anyone seriously interested in the history of type design."
"William S. and Sylvia Holton Peterson have provided what will be forever the definitive account of this famous little book. . . . beautifully produced by the Oak Knoll Press."
The Book Collector
"A truly remarkable achievement. ... There is no student of Boswell or Johnson who will not take pleasure and heart in this large and impressive book."
-Robert DeMaria, Jr.,
Johnsonian News Letter
