What’s the best way to promote a stencil-like typeface? With a stencil-like specimen book, naturally! Foundry Nootype‘s book devoted to its Devinyl font – actually to just one of the 8 styles in this family: stencil – is an inspired meeting between topic and technique. We can’t recall the last time we saw die cutting used so extensively nor so effectively.
The urge to use any of a number of these pages as real-world stencils is overwhelming; our inner street artist certainly sat up and took notice.
The Arjowiggins Curious Skin and Curious Matter pages enhance the haptic experience of an already eminently tactile publication. (Note: Arjowiggins’ Curious Collection is distributed in the U.S. by Mohawk.)
If there’s a disappointment in all this it is only that they produced but 20 copies, making this book an instant collector’s item.
