edition

A tex input file to use with XeLaTeX and the corresponding pdf output in order to compare Brill with Times New Roman on a text of width 90mm. Files meant for the thread http://www.typophile.com/node/103271

The input text is utf8 encoded and should normally have extension .tex.

Can anyone comment on the production quality of the 2001 "two volumes in one" Oak Knoll / British Library reprinting of DB Updike's Printing Types: Their History, Forms, and Use (details here)? How does it fare in comparison with the various other printings that have been published over the years?

It would be nice to have both volumes consolidated in a singular tome, but I'm fearful that the image fidelity is sub-par due to the reproduction processes they might have used. I read through this past thread on the topic, but there isn't any definitive report on the 2001 version there. Or did I miss it?

Thanks in advance.
