    DescriptionWith essays and interviews from esteemed typographers, graphic designers and artists, Font: "The Sourcebook" explores font as information, fine art, identity and historical marker, all the while charting the evolution of the typeface with pioneering fonts that have marked its history, such as Garamond, Gill Sans, Helvetica, Univers, Meta and Unit. Looking at both the iconic and the more arcane arenas where fonts come into play, the book goes on to profile some of the most innovative and important historical and contemporary typefaces currently in use, making "Font: The Sourcebook" a resource no designer, typographer, artist or aesthete will want to be without.

    Review quote
    'While it contains a shed-load of alphabets and fonts, this book is more than just a catalog of typefaces.' Vice 'It's part catalogue, with a seductive selection of fonts on display. But it also presumes to tell "the story of type." And it's a tale that makes the relationship between print, design and history seem as complex and current as ever.' Prospect Magazine 'A must-have - and one that will forever be within armʼs reach on my desk.' Portland Book Review
