Font (NIPB): Classic Typefaces for Contemporary Graphic Design - Paperback
Font provides a fully integrated visual sourcebook of classic fonts that still resonate with contemporary style for today's graphic designers. Each font featured in the book is accompanied by the main character set of the principal font along with "typesheet" style examples of the font with specifications. The characteristics of each font, such as vertically stressed oblique serifs or abrupt contrasts, will be highlighted, and the main font will be juxtaposed with other similar fonts for easy cross-referencing. Uniquely for a typeface sourcebook, each font is also shown in situ to give a real-life working context. Broken down into specific typographic classifications, this classic collection provides an inspirational resource for graphic designers alongside a fully featured type source, allowing designers to make considered font choices without having to trawl through the vast font libraries on offer from most font vendors.
