Revival Type: Digital Typefaces Inspired by the Past
Revival Type offers an illuminating account of the design inspirations and technical transformations that have shaped the digital typefaces of the 21st century. Many typefaces from the pre-digital past have been reinvented for use on computers and mobile devices, while other new font designs are revivals of letterforms, drawn from inscriptions, calligraphic manuals, posters, and book jackets. This book deftly introduces these fonts, many of which are widely used, and engagingly tells their stories.
