Steven Heller, Lita Talarico

Arranged alphabetically, the world’s most exciting designers and typographers- including Philippe Apeloig, Ed Benguiat, Hoefler Type Foundry, Henrik Kubel, Toshi Omagari, and Francesco Zorzi- present a staggering range of ways to communicate with typography. More than 800 featured sketchbook pages reveal the designers' creative practices across diverse briefs, concepts, languages, and alphabets.

This rich compendium of typographic ideas stresses the importance of typographic thinking at a time when reading habits are evolving, while celebrating the varied and innovative ways that designers practice this time- honored craft.
