Item description for Font. The SourceBook by Bruce Tice & Nadine Monem...

From wood block to digital fonts, Font: The Sourcebook draws on the rich history of typefaces to produce a uniquely comprehensive survey of this fascinating field, beginning with its history in the foundry and carrying through to the most cutting edge and digital fonts being designed today.

With essays and interviews from esteemed typographers, graphic designers and artists, Font: The Sourcebook explores font as information, fine art, identity and historical marker, all the while charting the evolution of the typeface with pioneering fonts that have marked its history, such as Garamond, Gill Sans, Helvetica, Univers, Meta and Unit. Looking at both the iconic and the more arcane arenas where fonts come into play, the book goes on to profile some of the most innovative and important historical and contemporary typefaces currently in use, making Font: The Sourcebook a resource no designer, typographer, artist or aesthete will want to be without.

Font: The Sourcebook includes the work of John Baskerville, Herbert Bayer, Chris Brand, Neville Brody, Dave Farey, Adrian Frutiger, Claude Garamond, Johann Gutenberg, Gareth Hague, Heinrich Jost, Howard Ketter, Ross Mills, Albert-Jan Pool, David Quay, Erik Spiekermann, amongst others.
