New ornamental type : decorative lettering in the digital age by Steven Heller( Book )

10 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 670 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"New Ornamental Type presents a dazzling kaleidoscope of highly decorated or fancy fonts across a wide spectrum of styles and effects. Psychedelia, Hip-Hop, Gothic, flowers, smoke, hair and electricity are just a few of the styles for the hundreds of examples inspired by nature, history, and just about anything that is visually expressive." "Beginning with a historical overview of ornament and how it has evolved since the beginning of the twentieth century, the book also includes essays introducing the background, influences, and outstanding aspects of typographical design."--Jacket
New vintage type : classic fonts for the digital age by Steven Heller( Book )

15 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Retro is the new modern. And nowhere is that fact more evident than in typography, which today uses vintage type in ads, book and magazine design, movies, and everywhere words convey meaning. Viewers may not even realize that the type itself conveys mood, information, and a sense of style, but graphic designers know the power of vintage type. Now the world's foremost historian of graphic design presents New Vintage Type, a remarkable rethinking and rediscovery of old and classic typefaces for today's modern needs. Hundreds of amazing, astounding, and obscure examples from around the world are gathered here, organized into five historically and stylistically grouped sections: the Victorian Age, the Woodtype Era, Art Deco Style, Modern Movement, and the Eccentric Movement. With hundreds of lively and one-of-a-kind examples, plus informed, intriguing text, New Vintage Type is the graphic designer's guide to choosing and using vintage type for maximum impact."--Publisher description

The typographic universe : letterforms found in nature, the built world and human imagination by Steven Heller( Book )

7 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A celebration of the world of letters found or created in unexpected places: natural, artificial, and urban alike. Even non-graphic designers know that type is everywhere: fonts and typefaces fill everything we consume or inhabit. They communicate, inform, sell, explain ... and yet finding serendipitous letterforms in the least likely locations can also excite and inspire. Once experienced, it is impossible not to see letters in anything from forests to housing projects, from leaves to brickwork. The eye becomes accustomed to seeing a world built of letters. Unlike most books on typography that present the "best"; and most refined examples, the object here is to reveal the "lost" or "unseen" typographies in nature and our cities. From machine-made and sculptural forms to flora and fauna, from the fading ghost types on buildings from a pre-digital age to the subterranean forms found beneath our urban centers, from crowd-sourced creations to the popular vernacular, there is a universe of letterforms all around us.--

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In an age of slick, computer-generated type and Photoshopped perfection, hand-drawn packing is enjoying a global resurgence. As shorthand for something more authentic, homegrown, handmade, or crafted, hand-drawn packaging is found on everything from supermarket eggs to Chipotle drink cups. In this exhaustive and lavishly illustrated survey, organized by four types--DIY, Art, Craft, and Artisanal--Anderson pulls back the curtain on the working processes and inspirations of forty letterers, illustrators, and designers from all around the world through insightful interviews, process sketches, and her infectious love of the medium"--
American typeplay by Steven Heller( Book )

5 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The advent of the computer has spawned a remarkable proliferation of both typography and type design. American Typeplay is an intensive survey of the masterful uses of type by more than 150 designers working in a variety of media. Over 400 images demonstrate an eclectic array of approaches, from hand lettering to custom font design to retro and vernacular appropriation to classical homage. Striking examples of annual reports, brochures, posters, book jackets, CD packages, magazine covers, typefaces, invitations, catalogs, logos, stationery, media kits, fonts and more are reproduced in full color. A wellspring of typographic ingenuity, American Typeplay demonstrates how today's most noted graphic designers successfully stretch, bend, distort and "play" with type to achieve imaginative results. From the subtle to the outrageous, from the fresh to the bold, American Typeplay celebrates type in the digital age
