The Field Guide to Typography explores and explains the myriad typefaces that we see around us in our day-to-day lives, from airplane liveries to computer screens, from billboard hoardings to signage systems. It presents over 120 typefaces - old and new, common and unusual - with photographic references to help `font spotters' identify particular typefaces in the wild. Accompanying background information explains the origin, usage and key features of each typeface, and `Field Facts' provide little-known nuggets of information to expand your typographical awareness. Attractive and informative, The Field Guide to Typography is a unique visual reference for novice font fans and experienced designers alike, and a comprehensive celebration of our expanding typographic world.
