New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I have just been reading a book called About Face and in the description of sans serif it says "The first sans serifs, characterised (like Flat Face before them) by absence of serifs..." I was just wondering what a flat face was? Would they technically be the first sans serif typefaces even before caslon's sans?
I tried googleing didn't go so well and search appears to be broken
any links or info would be greatly appriciated, thanks
