Overview

Access to digital typography has given more people the tools to develop alternative forms of visual language and thousands of digital fonts now exist with new ideas and directories being developed constantly. Type 1 brings together the best digital typefaces from around the world, providing an invaluable and unique visual resource for typographers and graphic designers.
The book is divided into sections based on typographic styles: Modular, Line, Graphic, Bitmapped, Dirty, Text, Stencil, and Calligraphic. Brief descriptions of each typeface include information on the inspiration behind the design, along with the name of the designer and a contact address. Accompanying the book is a CD containing eight free fonts (one to represent each section of the book) specially commissioned from selected typeface designers. Contributing typeface designers and foundries include Club21, T26, eboy, Alexander Gelman, [+ism], Tim Fletcher, Swifty, Jeremy Tankard, Alias, The Fonts Bureau, Agfa Monotype, Extra, Thirstype, Beaufonts, Ben Drury, Hideki Inaba, Optimo, Buro Destruct, and Fontshop International.
