Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book The Palaeotypography of the French Renaissance contains the table of contents, and preface. The book is about printing types. Or more exactly, about historical printing types, though not about their physics and technicalities, such as alloy, weight, height to paper, or durability. The book concentrates on their 'face' or 'design', as that can be seen on a printed page. The thirteen chapters that follow share a common subject and a common goal. Their common subject is type design in sixteenth-century France. The chapters' common goal is to ascertain the paternity of the typefaces described and to critically appraise their attributions, which often have been made on too weak grounds.

Keywords: French Renaissance; historical printing types; palaeotypography
