Shabaaam here it is, the 3D type book. Arrived with airmail today the book has a cool printed surface and it seems very 3D with the special varnished letters a first sight. What we like most – there are more work pieces in it than text. To be honest, we like to see examples not a bunch of text, if its no biography or novel.

About the book

As well as pioneering milestones from as far back as the 1940s, this book focuses on recent and brand new typographic projects. 3D type specialist Andrew Byrom explains the context and motivation behind these innovative works in an insightful foreword. Inspired by the daily dose of colourful, often talking letters, walking and dancing through the television screen, lately everybody should be in love with 3D typography. A new wave of appreciation for non digital, handmade and well-crafted work involving three dimensional things is coming. Grown over the last three decades with the LOVE sign of Robert Indiana or the Hollywood sign in the hills of LA, fellow artists and designers share their fascination for 3D.

The book contains amazing works from Sagmeister inc., Vaughan Oliver, Milton Glaser, Alvin Lustig, Louis Danziger, Roger Excoffon and many more.

We reccomend the book to every designer who loves to create new typefaces with the help of his surrounding objects. And of course to all our followers and fans, because it’s really astonishing how easy it is for example to make a digital looking typeface with the help of a fence and some tennis balls.
