The Appropriately Named Reynolds Stone

Not too long ago, I asked students of lettering and type what they know about the British designer Reynolds Stone. Their answer? “Nothing.” I guess it was an unfair question since what I know about his work is based only on a couple of books. Notably this one from 1977. And this one from 1952.

Stone is known for lettering, engravings and inscriptions, and for having a last name that fits nicely with some of his life’s work. To help broaden our knowledge, here are a few resources—his biography and bibliography, and a selection of the stamps he designed.
