Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This is the third volume from Jacquillat and Vollauschek of FL@33, a multidisciplinary studio for visual communication. The previous two titles (Postcard; Made and Sold) followed a scheme in which the authors invited designers to contribute examples of pieces that convey the aspect of visual communication around which the book is based. For this project, the authors expanded their scope by also soliciting additional artists through an open call for contributions. The result is a richly illustrated volume showing letters of the alphabet created from an extremely wide variety of materials—shoelaces, cheese, tire tracks, moss, the human body, and much more. A short foreword by 3-D type specialist Andrew Byrom puts the work in context, and a closing section includes pertinent information on the contributors. VERDICT This is the most comprehensive study to date on this unique corner of the graphic arts, and while it has a quirky quality that will appeal to some casual readers, it is really for graphic design and typography specialists. This well-produced and reasonably priced work should find a home on most designer's shelves.—Mark Woodhouse, Elmira Coll. Lib., NY
