Press & Reviews

“If this book was a movie trailer it would have a unusually deep voiced man say ‘If you only buy one book about type & lettering this year, then this is the one for you.'”

“Beautiful with lots of typographic eye candy and some useful information for beginning type designers and anybody else who wants to develop a more critical eye for the subtleties of letterforms.”

“Lettering books can sometimes fall into two extremes: either being too traditional, or limit themselves to computer fonts. This book seems to bridge the two without making us feel we have to learn the serious art calligraphy in order to do good lettering …
I find the most interesting books on lettering to be ones that include informal handwriting and casual lettering, and this book covers both subjects. It also includes the classical instruction on traditional lettering, but it’s also full of fun images, and it is a welcome sign to the modern designer.”

“An amazing overview of the history, theory, and practice of modern typeface design.”

“Yet another book about typography that I absolutely must have. Lettering & Type is written, assembled, and designed by Bruce Willen and Nolen Strals of Post Typography (with a foreword by Ellen Lupton). The book features a bunch of typographic eye candy along with interviews with Shaun Flynn and Christian Schwartz.”

“Another solid read from the Design Brief series. Great visuals and a good range of information from history to creating lettering and type design.”
