About this title

Synopsis:

This is the book that graphic designers have been waiting for. From the celebrated design team of Heller and Fili comes the first of Chronicle's Art Deco design books to be devoted exclusively to type. Garnered from vintage specimen sheets and type books as well as commercial design artifacts from all over the world, these alphabets illustrate how the artistic sensibility of the '20s and '30s extended to every facet of graphic design, including the typographer's art. Heller and Fili have brought together a breathtaking collection of wonderful typefaces that have lain hidden for decades to create an inspirational reference for designers and graphic artists everywhere.
