Reviews

Clayton writes with ingenuous charm and contagious enthusiasm, often illustrating his points with calligraphic studies of his own...he turns a line of type into an object of contemplation and makes it okay to be curious, all over again, about the ancient symbols we all spent so long learning to use, and to ignore.--Lorin Stein, The Paris Review

Clayton reawakens readers to the versatility and nuances of something so ubiquitous as to be almost invisible...It's a book no bibliophile should miss.--Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
