    “Chronicles the Paperback Revolution—the men and the women, the companies and the characters, that enabled American writers to find American readers by the millions. Crammed with facts as well as gossip, ‘Two-Bit Culture’ not only brings to life the history of the paperback but examines its present state and predicts where the fascinating business may be heading.”

      That’s Gryphon, my first published typeface (for Headliners International).

      Ah! Thank you, Nick. I knew I’d seen the type before and the closest thing I could locate was your Pratt. Makes sense that it’s also yours. Thanks for being the brunt of our temporary Covfefe prank. Will change the name now. Can you send us a sample?
