ABOUT THE BOOK
Serif or sans serif, thin or thick stems, high or low x-height — the form and details of letters have profound influences on the perception of content and only a few typefaces became that famous that they would influence many generations of designers and readers.
A groundbreaking collaboration between viction:ary and design studio TwoPoints.Net, the I Love Type collection captures the contemporary face of eight time-honoured typefaces and their modern variations in striking current applications from the global design scene. Albert-Jan Pool (designer of FF DIN), Jan Middendorp (author and editor of MyFonts.com), Wolfgang Hartmann (owner of BauerTypes) and Allan Haley (former vice president of ITC), etc. add depth to the study, as they share first-hand stories and valuable insights into the origin, concepts and development of typeface designs in the preface of respective volumes.
In a limited edition of 300, available worldwide, this boxed I Love Type collection will be the essential and complete reference for creative professionals working across branding, advertising, editorial and all other means of visual communication. The set carries a full set of volume 1-8, with big sellers — Futura, Avant Garde, Bodoni, DIN, Gill Sans, Franklin Gothic — and new members Helvetica (vol. 7) and Times (vol. 8).
