Stan Knight is perhaps best known as the author of the palaeographical survey, Historical Scripts and its sequel, Historical Types. Both of these books grew out of his more than thirty years’ experience as a professor of Graphic Design in both England and the USA. Stan first encountered ‘writing, illuminating, and lettering’ sixty–plus years ago when he was a student at Leeds College of Art with Thomas Swindlehurst. (Tom himself had been a student with the Edward Johnston.) ‘Letters’ have been a life-long obsession ever since. However, since moving to Idaho he has quickly developed skills with a chainsaw and a handgun.
