Description

Steven Heller, the world’s foremost graphic-design commentator, and Lita Talarico, design educator, open up designers’ personal sketchbooks to provide an intimate look at the creative processes behind typefaces, word-images and logos. Arranged alphabetically by name, the world’s most exciting designers and typographers, including Philippe Apeloig, Ed Benguiat, Hoefler Type Foundry, Henrik Kubel, Toshi Omagari and Francesco Zorzi, present a staggering range of unique and exciting ways to communicate through letters and words.
