Type Book








1930 - the News Chronicle newspaper is formed by the merger of the Daily News and the Daily Chronicle
1960 News Chronicle merges with the Daily Mail

This is the News Chronicle specimen book as complied by the Advertising director: W.E. Tomlin. Tomlin regarded this book as different from the ordinary newspaper type-book because it contained full alphabets on paper which didn't affect the visual weight of the face.

You know what I love to look at is the style and editing sheets at big papers like The New York Times... how they treat names, places, locations, capitalization... all of the above! Thanks for sharing these though!

Typography, it's come a long way, but needs to go back to the old days.

They were much more interesting! ; )

Ah, the News Chronicle. Never mind the typography, subsuming it into the Mail was the tragedy....
