Greer Allen was a legendary book designer and University Printer to Yale University. As a young man he worked on the racetrack and rode steeplechasers for 5 years until his then printing firm-employer ordered him to stop because the injuries were interfering with his day job. This pamphlet was published as a memorial tribute to him. It reprints one of his popular lectures, which applied racetrack lessons to the problems facing graphic designers. Can be sent outside the US for less than the default shipping rate.
