Type Design: Radical Innovations and Experimentation

Front Cover
Harper Collins, Oct 21, 2003 - Art - 224 pages

Though digital tools may have allowed designers new power and flexibility, typography remains the bedrock of good graphics, and one of the most exciting areas of experimentation. Despite the myriad collections of type design produced, no one has before attempted a thematic and critical overview of digital typography and the oft-unpublished radical works that lead to these designs. This book is extensively illustrated with the work of dozens of typographers from around the world, and illuminates the rich history of digital typography from its physical properties and production methods, through the development of typographic styles, to the full diversity of its uses in print, architecture, film, TV, and other media.
