Typoholic

A lovely new book  from the team at Victionary, Typoholic celebrates modern typography at it’s most playful.  Featuring 288 colourful pages of custom types, from digital to real life installations, it offers a thorough review of modern type-making.

Separated in to two parts, the first Typoholic Font to Form, focuses on type-related projects, while the second Typoholic A to Z, is a collection of contemporary illustrated typefaces.  The book examines a diverse range of sculptural, illustrated and photographically created letterforms and alphabets as they in appear in graphic identities, art projects, advertising and much more.

Founded in 2001 by Victor Cheung, Victionary is a Hong Kong-based publisher whose other book projects include Eat Me: Appetite For Design and Nice To Meet You.

  1. Really good typography like this always has a weird way of getting me excited for text. Those 4D letters are just plain insane. :)
