Playful Type 2: Ephemeral Lettering and Illustrative Fonts Reviews
I love this book, I am a graphic design student and currently studying calligraphy and this book is just amazing, great type designs from top designers, it contains not only images but the proceses too and information about the designer. Really nice quality book, hard cover everything you would expect from a book about type.
I love Playful Type 2. This book shows experimental type design and lettering going into a really interesting direction right now - a blend between hand-crafted and digitally manipulated art, rustic but real. The original lettering in the book is to die for. The innovation involving letterpresses and screenprinting made me want to be in art school again...an inspiring read!
I own Playful Type (the first copy) as it is a book I keep revisiting for inspiration. Naturally I was excited to pick up Playful Type 2. From exciting emerging designers like Jessica Hische's cheeky typography and Aron Jancso crazy, calligraphy-inspired fonts, this a book chock-full of the industry's latest and greatest. I only wish there were more interviews -- I wanted more.
