In a homogenized world dominated by electronic and computerized type forms, author Simon Jennings takes a unique look at the real world, and presents over five hundred found letterforms through thoughtful photographs of everyday examples of our alphabet. Jennings has been recording letterforms for over forty years, and the book is his tribute to the anonymous talents of vernacular artists around the world. For anyone interested in visual art and design, this beautifully produced book is a treasure trove of typographic delights. Presented as a special gift package, the set includes over one hundred of the letterforms on individual magnets sure to spark your creativity! Imaginative and inventive, bringing together an extraordinarily diverse range of letterforms, Outdoor Types is an artwork in itself.
