"An introduction by design historian Steven Heller places the contemporary work in a broader context of design. At the heart of the book are hundreds of examples, presented in creative themes: "Scrawl" (letterforms that are raw, splotchy and untidy); "Scratch" (scraped, cut and gouged fonts); "Script" (type that is sinuous and ornate); "Stitch" (letters that have been sewn, sutured and embroidered); "Simulate" (faces that have been redrawn or copied); "Shadow" (dimensional, voluminous and monumental letterforms); "Suggestive" (forms that imply the metaphorical, surreal and symbolic); and "Sarcastic" (the ironical, comical and satirical in lettering)." "In an age of characterless digital typography, Handwritten returns to the values of craft. This collection is a must for any student or practitioner of design."--BOOK JACKET."
