3D Typography Book Giveaway

Can you really compare experimental 3D typography – like lettering made of live moss or letter kites that fly messages in the sky – to the work of Gutenberg? If you ask Jeanette Abbink, Emily CM Anderson and the over 100 international designers, typographers and artists featured in 3D Typography, the answer is a resounding yes. From type crafted of steel and neon, to carefully-cut live moss, everyday items like buttons and sugar cubes, to giant installments of polythene and paper, the work in 3D Typography serves as a bold reaction to the fact that so much of today¹s typography is conceived via screens. Book Cover Giveaway We have a copy of the 3D Typography book to give away thanks to our friends over at MBP publisher, to participate is really easy, just leave a comment with a book suggestion. We will announce the winner next Friday. Having worked for prestigious media outlets as designers and art directors, Abbink and Anderson have compiled this book as a reaction to the fact that so much of today's typography is conceived via two-dimensional screens. Like Gutenberg and generations of typeface designers who worked with physically shaped and cast lead type, these artists return the literal heft to letters. Page Samples Do you want to buy the book?

Awesome Typographic Tattoos

Tattoos are a really big deal because that's something to mark you skin forever. One good way to go when you decide to get a tattoo is go for a typographic one! I'm not talking by experience, since I never got one, but that's what I would definitely do. Think with me: if you're not sure of what tattoo you'll get, but you really dig some phrases, sayings, quotes or whatever, is much more certain to get a really badass one if you just go with what you got! My question for all of you right now is: What would you get tattooed? Just please don't tell me it's "All you need is love". ;p

Click here to check out all the previous Typography Mania Make sure to click on each image to go to original location where you can check out more work from each artist and designer. Videos Book Suggestion Lettering & Type Creating Letters and Designing Typefaces (Design Brief) No component of graphic design has attracted as much interest or inspired as much innovation in recent years as lettering and type. These fundamentals of design, once the exclusive domain of professional typographers, have become an essential starting point for anyone looking for a fresh way to communicate. Practical information about creating letters and type often amounts to a series of guidelines for executing a particular process, font program, or style. But what makes lettering and type endlessly fascinating is the flexibility to interpret and sometimes even break these rules. Lettering & Type is a smart-but- not-dense guide to creating and bending letters to one's will. More than just another pretty survey, it is a powerful how-to book full of relevant theory, history, explanatory diagrams, and exercises. While other type design books get hung up on the technical and technological issues of type design and lettering, Lettering & Type features the context and creativity that shape letters and make them interesting. Authors and designers Bruce Willen and Nolen Strals examine classic design examples as well as exciting contemporary lettering of all stripes—from editorial illustrations to concert posters to radical conceptual alphabets. Lettering & Type is ideal for anyone looking to move beyond existing typography and fonts to create, explore, and use original or customized letterforms. This latest addition to our best-selling Design Briefs series features a foreword by Ellen Lupton and hundreds of images and examples of work by historical and contemporary designers, artists, and illustrators, including Marian Bantjes, Stefan Sagmeister, Matthew Carter, Christoph Niemann, Steve Powers (ESPO), House Industries, Christian Schwartz, Margaret Kilgallen, James Victore, Abbott Miller, Sibylle Hagmann, Ed Fella, and many more. Throughout the book interviews with type designers, artists, and graphic designers provide real-world perspective from contemporary practitioners.
