ABOUT THE BOOK
Numerals is a brilliant graphic element in its own right. From handwriting to analogue displays and digital type, these geometric symbols have evolved as starkly as types did, marking names, time, sum and coding messages with simply 10 digits, from 0 to 9. As the first-ever focused review of modern digit design, Graphic Digits profiles more than a hundred inspirational approaches that give numbers a magnified position in dally communications. From handicrafts to vector configurations, this title examines the artistic possibilities of customising rational and random numeral combinations in graphic identities, packaging, celebrations and marketing campaigns.
