Readers familiar with his famously cranky The Devil's Dictionary know that Ambrose Bierce did not suffer fools gladly. As a social critic, he was admired and feared for his witty, acerbic attacks on hypocrisy, pettiness, and corruption. As a writer and editor, he could be equally severe in rejecting vulgarity and slang, and in demanding that writing be clear and precise. In 1909 Bierce published Write It Right: A Little Book of Literary Faults as an aid to fellow writers and editors.
This handmade Stonework Editions book, with an Italian linen over boards cover, is set in Electra and printed on Mohawk Superfine Text.
