A2Z+: Alphabets & Signs

$40.00

Revised and dramatically expanded with over 100 new pages, the fourth edition of Julian Rothenstein's classic compendium, A2Z remains the ultimate source for unusual, inventive fonts not found anywhere else: the "Tippler" alphabet created from an elegant, drunk man's meanderings, one based on ink spots, and another derived from an avant-garde Czech ballet. Eye test charts assert their modernist merit, and a Russian graphic simplifies the connection between agriculture and industry in elegant Constructivist type. Includes 130 new images from previous editions, including the spectacular statistical charts of W. E. Du Bois,

Culled from books, advertisements, packaging, posters, and technical manuals from around the world, this off-beat collection is the perfect inspiration for designers, history buffs, artists, as well as casual readers interested in remarkable typefaces, symbols, and patterns.
