Can you really compare experimental three-dimensional typography—like lettering made of live moss or letter kites that fly messages in the sky—to the work of Gutenberg? If you ask Jeanette Abbink, Emily CM Anderson and the over 100 international designers and typographers featured in 3D Typography, the answer is a resounding yes. The hardcover book (224 pages) contains 135 projects by emerging and established creatives (contributors listed below), and 12 interviews by Autobahn, Andrew Byron, Jerome Corgier, Stephanie DeArmond, Oded Ezer, Anna Garforth, Gyöngy Laky, Clotilde Olyff, Camilo Rojas, Stefan Sagmeister, Dan Tobin Smith, and Typeworkshop. In addition, cultural writer, Karrie Jacob’s perceptive foreword helps explain context and motivation behind the inventive projects.
3D Typography is now available from the authors for $30 plus tax and shipping for a limited time. This offer is good only in the United States.
