Letters and words are the most efficient way to talk. The great demand for quick and effective communication has challenged designers' originality to innovate expressions in words, phrases and letter forms.
From digital types to real life installations, Typoholic is a thorough review of modern type-making that makes the core of communication itself. In two separate sections, the book introduces more than 40 new illustrative and animated type families that come in a narrative package of alphabets, numbers and punctuations, followed by 200 colourful pages of ad-hoc projects featuring custom type designs as logo marks, campaign installations and editorial art. The book would particularly highlight how meanings of words and phrases multiples when typography meets design, handworks, photography, performance art and illustrations that individually convert the process of reading into unique experience which one can embrace, encounter, touch and explore.
