This review is from: Letterwork: Creative Letterforms in Graphic Design (Paperback)
This is a balanced and informative introduction to a specific typographic subject: the making of letters for specific purposes.
A well designed book that gives space for sculpture, posterwork, motion graphics, album covers, magazine advertisements, greetings cards, film, exhibition posters and various computer uses.
The work is from around the world. Mixed in with a few old classics most of the work shown is modern, fresh and inspiring.
Neuenschwander expertly explores type as both image and messenger and discusses the future of handlettering in the face of the PC and Mac onslaught. Far from being pessimistic, Neuenschwander suggests that never before have so many new and talented lettering artists produced so much wonderful and inspiring work. I tend to agree.
To help us find these great artists there is a very useful directory.
