About this title

Synopsis:

In this full-color book, author Robin Williams and illustrator John Tollett celebrate the new wave of type design known as "grunge" typography. The book consists of famous and not-so-famous quotes about type and design set in a range of grunge fonts, using rule-breaking layouts. The illustrations, created in Fractal Design Painter, complement the text. Includes a companion disk containing 22 freeware and shareware grunge fonts (Type 1), several of which were newly created for this book."Grunge" fonts - crazy typefaces - can be seen everywhere these days, from magazines to advertising materials. It's the hot topic in design circles, creating debate among those who use this new, lively, uninhibited typography and those who eschew it, believing that readability should be the main goal of type. A Blip in the continuum is the first book to spotlight and celebrate this revolutionary aesthetic. It is written by award-winning author Robin Williams, who regularly breaks rules not just in her design, but in the computer books she writes. Few authors have a following equal to hers both within the professional typographic community and among the wider computer-using public.Throughout the book, quotes about type and design are set in a range of grunge fonts, using rule-flaunting layouts. Each layout contains a full-color illustration created with the Painter software program. The off-the-wall illustrations form a bridge to the typography, enhancing the reader's understanding of this new graphic movement. More than 100 of the best new grunge fonts are featured in the book, which is for graphic designers, illustrators, and computer users of every level who want to understand grunge typography at the same time they feast on this eye-popping tour of design's cutting edge.
