About this title:

Synopsis: Book by Williams, Robin

From the Back Cover: "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.

Wagon Tongue Books
(Calgary, AB, Canada)

Book Description Peachpit Press, Berkeley, 1995. Paper. Condition: VG++. John Tollett (illustrator). First Edition. 96 page booklet that is TALLER - than wide. Looks like a humourous, creative SEND-UP of today's world. Upon RE-consiDEration it is a typography book. A sampling of a variety of `fringe' lettering styles accom. by interesting quotations from important OldER folks - sUch as : We would that words become shooting stars, like gods, that they would rise up . by Wm. Shakespeare. The books presentation of the above actually has a shooting-star swooshing through ` gods and words'. The MAC diskette in a pocket at the back convinced me that this was not just millenial humour. Cond : Glossy paper wrapper is white with a gold flecked pattern. Cover graphic is an inset of a dread-locked, colourful young man . Edges are crisp, one corner is lightly dogged - front and back. Colours bright, binding tight. No names, marks, tears nor stains. Minimal soiling. Quote (p. 47) : " Your attitude is your life .". Seller Inventory # 002890
