The Legacy Press is very pleased to announce the following book that was

books, this one was designed by Russell from dust jacket to the colophon.

hardcover book with a loose insert of a double-sided, hand-printed sheet
featuring Russell's metal and digital typefaces. The numbers are limited,
so order your copy today! The other edition is a paperback of the same text
