|About the Book|
This book is a fascinating insight into contemporary typeface design. Despite the rapidly increasing number of typefaces in the world made possible by computers, type design is still complex, technical and can seem intimidating. Through interviews with 12 of the worlds best and best-known typographers, Designing Typefaces explores approaches to contemporary type design. Idiosyncratic aspects of each designers work are highlighted, and visual examples of work-in-progress demonstrate the creative development. A type design tutorial looks in more detail at some of the issues raised, and an illustrated glossary explains the technical language of typeface design.
