Product description

Finding the perfect font is tricky, and in an increasingly digital age, the options seem endless. This handy volume takes the mystery out of font selection by displaying the entire alphabet and numerals for 1000 unique typefaces, making it easy for designers or anyone who works with type to find the perfect face for any job. An easy-to-understand icon system organizes hundreds of fonts, making searching and cross-referencing easy. And, an additional feature, color photos offer real-world examples of many of the fonts in action, showing how they translate from screen to final layout. Accessible and thorough, 1000 Fonts is an indispensable tool for novice and expert designers alike."
