Ready-to-Use Bold Headline Alphabets: Eight Decorative Faces in Three Sizes
Dan X. Solo
Dover Publications, 1991 - Design - 64 pages
The most effective typeface styles for headlines are bold, simple, and instantly communicative. Graphic artist Dan X. Solo has selected eight headline typefaces that have proven highly successful as attention-getters. Ranging from Impact to Tamil Heavy to Folio Extra Bold, they are presented here in full alphabets printed in three commonly used sizes. Each alphabet includes upper- and lower-case letters as well as numbers and punctuation marks. In addition, there are multiples of each character according to frequency of use (i.e. more "e's" than "z's"). Here's a book you'll want to keep close at hand for the perfect headline to top off your next story, flyer, poster, or ad.
