Smart and Handsome 8 Dec. 2012
By Ina Saltz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I had high expectations for this new book from Steven Heller and Gail Anderson; I will say that my expectations were not only met but exceeded. Steven Heller and Gail Anderson have curated and contextualized a massive category of design in this hefty, handsome volume, similarly formatted to several previous typographically thematic volumes that they have completed as a team. Bringing decades of experience, scholarship and creative knowledge to bear on modernism in graphic design, Heller and Anderson define, dissect, subdivide and examine all aspects of modernist expression in design with precision and intelligence.

While I was familiar with many of the examples included here, there were also many hitherto unseen (at least by me) examples, and it has been a delight to discover these as I have sifted through the pages of New Modern Design. These contain a wealth of relevant material; it was obviously a huge undertaking to collect and organize these works. It is especially gratifying to see that attention has been paid to the identification of the principal type in each work. I must mention that New Modern Design is also beautifully produced; it is an equal pleasure to hold it, and to behold it.

Heller and Anderson are themselves cultural treasures and I look forward to future collaborations by these gifted collaborators. As a professor of typography, a designer and an author, I value the addition of this essential sourcebook to my professional library.
Great coffee table book for type nerds 18 Feb. 2013
By Andrew Dalgleish - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought this as a gift for my wife who is a total typography nerd and she loved it.

Its a big bulky book that looks good on a coffee table and is very visual with most of the pages being taken up by full colour spreads of various examples of type used in all sorts of examples of how we use type, not just what we say with it. Its just nice to browse through.
