Letters as Symbols: International Collection of Lettermarks
The logos featured in Letters As Symbols are a combination of work made by the greatest of all time and of work by contemporary known and unknown designers or agencies. Looking purely at the aesthetics of these logos, they are all equal and have the qualities a good logo must have. The logos are arranged in a non-specific way. The only order that is used is the alphabetical order per letter. This gives you the possibility of seeing the same level of quality between respected leaders in the field whose work is presented alongside designers who may not be as familiar.
The book is therefore not only a celebration of letters as symbols, it is also a celebration of the skill and knowledge that goes into logo design.
