"This book was designed and (except for the letterpress pages) set in type by Robert Bringhurst. The foundry type ... was handset in Stamford, Connecticut by Jerry Kelly. The Linotype metal was set by Davin Kuntze at the Woodside Press in Brooklyn, Jim Daggs at Ackley Publishing in Ackley, Iowa, and Michael Babcock at Linotypesetting in Allston, Massachusetts. The main text and illustrations were printed by five-color offset lithography at C&C (Zhōnghuá shāngwù cǎisè yìnshuā) in Shēnzhèn, Guǎngdong, on paper from the Yùlóng (Jade Dragon) mill in Lóngkǒu, Shāndōng. The letterpress portions were printed in Stamford, Connecticut, by Jerry Kelly on Mohawk Superfine, made in Waterford, New York. The principal type faces are Aldus Buchschrift and Palatino Sans. The type on the title page is foundry Palatino, Zapf Renaissance italic, and Aldus. There are one thousand copies of this edition, published by David R. Godine in association with the Book Club of California. Palatino: The Natural History of a Typeface was first issued by the Book Club of California in May 2016, in an edition of three hundred copies, each numbered and signed by the author." --
