ABOUT







Leila Arvin

Author of The art of the Hebrew book in the twentieth century (1988), published in A Sign and a witness: 2,000 years of Hebrew books and illuminated manuscripts, Leonard Singer Gold ed., New York Public Library and Oxford University Press. In 2001, Sivan Toldeo comments: Avrin briefly describes the typefaces that were available at the turn of the 20th century, then turns to 20th century typography. She describes the design and manufecture of many Hebrew typefaces, including Frank Ruehl, Miryam, Hadassah, Schocken, David, Koren, Narkiss BLock, Oron, and HATzvi. Avrin conjectures that Miryam was designed by Rafael Frank (the conjecture is proved as correct by Ittai Joseph Tamari, 1996), and points that Henri Friedlaender designed Aviv, Hadar, and Shalom for IBM. She also briefly describes the careers of some of the designers. She also lists and describes particularly finely printed Hebrew books, calligraphers, and significant publishers and printers.
