Format: Paperback
I bought this book as a gift for a friend of mine, who also studies design and I loved it so much, I bought myself one!

It is beautifully put together and a joy to read. Full of inspiration whether you want to create your own typography, look at creative illustration or appreciate fine design. There isn't a dull page in this book, so you'll never be bored.

The book is full off lots of different typographic designers such as-

Kindra Murphy, Holly Hopkinson, Luke Ramsey, Robin Cameron, Jeremy Dean and many more.

In the 256 pages, you are taken through an alphabetic, typographic journey.

Great price, inspirational and brilliant!
You wont regret it! Thanks for reading

I love this book I wish it was twice as long. I love typefaces and fonts and calligraphy and lettering, this has some amazing illustrations. I'm often looking for inspiration and this has it in spades! Well put together and easy to dip into, I highly recommend it.

This is exactly the kind of graphic book I love. I don't know about everyone else, because I'm not a mind reader of any-kind, but I hate having to read through all the crap to get to the good stuff; the graphics. Hand Job cuts to the chase, through amazing graphics all produced, as the title suggests by hand. It gives you the name and a little snippet of info (website etc.) of each artist so you can explore more of their work elsewhere.

In to graphics? BUY.

I got this as a present a while ago and I must say that the title threw me a little.

The book is all about handmade typography. Its not so much about being a reference manual or a how to but is a great inspiration when thinking about typography in your work.

The book features many different artists and is wonderfully made with soo much attention to detail.

If your interested in finding out more about handmade typography or just looking for something to inspire you then this is a great choice of book.

Love this book; it's fun and inspiring - and appeals to everyone I show it to regardless of age or interests. My friends kids of 6yrs and 12yrs both got inspired after flicking through it, to buy sketch books and start doodling and creating their own decorative alphabets/lettering - and I got inspired to pick up a pencil and start drawing again; bouyed by the fact that whatever skill level you are at, absolutely anyone can create and produce art and designs. I know qualified Graphic designers with this book on their shelves. It's a fun reference book for hand made type, illustration and inspirational ideas to have fun with in developing your own creative skills.

Format: Paperback
Although at first,judging by its title,i thought this book was about something rather,um, naughty.. but my tutor insisted this book was the best for font inspiration and she was right, there are hundreds of amazingly colourful pictures of hand made fonts that really inspired me for my coursework :)
I recommend you buy it! great for art students,graphic design,illustration or just someone who likes designing fonts :)
