Coming to terms

A new addition to the print library arrived this morning from the Netherlands. This 5th revised edition of The printer's terms: technical terms of the printing industry by Rudolf Hostettler is a beautifully understated little book.  Printed in five languages - German, English, French, Italian & Dutch, containing a tipped in card ruler marked out in Didot points, cicero, ems, inches & centimetres. A little gem.
