After having described the timeless classics of type design through the Manuali Tipografici, and after having revived the Italian masterpieces of 20th-century type design through publications dedicated to Raffaello Bertieri, Giulio Da Milano, Alessandro Butti and Aldo Novarese, the Tallone Press now pays tribute to the masterpieces which represent the pinnacle of modern aesthetic.
