 Caxton Club of Chicago Book List
Chicago, December 2002 In the growth era between the two World Wars, amidst the huge, bustling, profit-driven Chicago printing industry, there existed a subculture of artisans and artists who, laboring in the commercial trades by day, pursued a different aesthetic in their off hours.
In Chicago, this aesthetic combined with the anti-establishment, progressive values of the writers and artists of Chicago's post World War I cultural scene and evolved its own unique aesthetic and agenda, participating in international modernism and later embracing the New Bauhaus.
Edited by Chicago bibliophile and calligrapher Robert Williams and published in cooperation with The Caxton Club of Chicago, this volume also details the early adventures of a rural easterner who came to the "Metropolis of the West" in his early twenties and worked for some of the most influential journalists of his day.

 Gothamist: Gotham, The Typeface
Very cool article in the NY Times today about the Gotham typeface, which was inspired by simple sans-serif types seen everywhere in the city, and the young typeface was chosed for the cornerstone for the World Trade Center.

Some samples of the typeface can be found here at the Hoefler-and-Frere-Jones website, plus here are some interview with Frere-Jones from Typotheque and The Morning News.
