Letter Forms


Typography fans will love Little Book of Lettering, a new book out from Emily Gregory that presents the work of several artists and designers working with type in new ways. Andrew Joyce’s color combos for his hand-lettered type are inspired by NBA logos, and Carson Ellis also works by hand, illustrating her type with delicate flourish. Others, like Sean Freeman, compose in Photoshop, cutting, pasting and mashing together photographs and textures to form his lettering. All are masterfully working with type using all the tools available – whether looking to the history of sign painting, or combining hand-lettering with new technologies.
