The Making of Artistic Typefaces
A showcase of handcrafted typefaces as well as a toolkit of ideas and practical skills for creating fonts
Type lovers will find instructions on how to re-create dynamic typefaces, as well as examples of individual fonts that include details on the materials used and their use in real-world applications such as poster design, book covers, and event branding.
Featured projects include lettering created with 3D-printing and spray paint, flowers and chocolate shavings, paper folding and cutting, large-form pieces constructed from plywood and cement, coins, candy sprinkles, and a variety of stamping techniques, such as rubber stamps, wood blocks, and even carved potatoes.
A broad range of projects and detailed creative guidance make The Making of Artistic Typefaces a perfect choice for anyone looking to escalate their love affair with innovative type and design.
