About this title

Synopsis:

Selected by the worlds most knowledgeable and well-connected graphicdesign commentator, Steven Heller, this survey gets into the minds of designers who create typefaces, word-images and logos through their private sketchbooks. Arranged by designer, it reveals how nearly 120 of the worlds leading designers and typographers continually strive to find new and exciting ways of communicating through letters and words, and provides fascinating insights into their work. Aimed at all those who use type, whether by hand or on screen, this revealing compendium stresses the importance of good typography at a time when reading habits are changing, and celebrates a craft that has endured for centuries.

Review:

`...endlessly interesting and provides a sharp insight into the kind of mind needed to invent lettering, as well as casting a keen new light on the text we see around us every day' --The Big Issue

`Page after page of stunning and inspiring sketchbook images...the book's image-focused design showcases the work to maximum effect'
--Type to Ken.net

This serendipitous survey produces a lively range of work. --The Times Literary Supplement
