Steven Heller and Lita Talarico
This survey, selected by renowned graphic design commentator Steven Heller, gets into the minds of designers who create typefaces, word-images and logos, through their private sketchbooks. He intimately reveals how more than 90 of the world’s leading designers and typographers continually strive to find new and exciting ways of communicating through letters and words.
Established designers and up-and-coming talents include Ivan Chermayeff, Carlos Segura, Milton Glaser, Maira Kalman, Bob Aulfudish, Matthew Carter (United States); Javier Mariscal and Patrick Thomas (Spain); Erik Spiekermann, Viktor Nübel (Germany); Peter Bilak and Enkeling (The Netherlands); and Jean Baptiste Levée (France). The result provides fascinating insights into the expressive quality of letters and words.
