In a homogenized world dominated by electronic and computerized type forms, author Simon Jennings takes a unique look at the real world, and presents over five hundred found letterforms in a remarkable book. For anyone interested in visual art and design, this beautifully produced and refreshingly tangible alternative to the digital world is a treasure trove of the typographic delights to be found in our everyday lives. Jennings has been recording letterforms for over forty years, and this book is his tribute to the anonymous talents of vernacular artists around the world.
