Overview

Graphic designers, illustrators, and computer users of every level will feast of this eye-popping tour of design's cutting edge. A Blip in the continuum celebrates radical typography, a style creating dramatic controversy among designers and artists. It's the old guard vs. the "grunge" typographers, readability vs. a whole look and feel that exudes energy and breaks the rules.

The book takes no sides, but simply showcases the new look. Quotes about design are set in a range of grunge fonts, using rule-breaking layouts. Illustrator John Tollett and best-selling author Robin Williams create a book that is funky, free, wild, and wonderful - a perfect complement to the typography.

  • The Macintosh Edition was the 1995 winner in the book category of the Adobe Magazine Design contest
