Hand Job - A Catalog of Type
Hand Job: A Catalog of Type by Michael Perry is a collection of work by 50 typographers who draw by hand, an art that has been surfacing from the underground. The handmade lettering, an inspiration to any artist, is a refreshing change from the computer-generated fonts of the day. Examples of work by each typographer fill 2 to 6 pages, from a variety of sources. Plus, who can resist the title?
