Hand Job- Hand drawn fonts




I was looking at a shop called Uppercase today and came across this book, its books like these that I just drool over.
In the days of computer generated fonts, its great to see people still designing and drawing their own fonts. It creates a very originally creative, stand out effect to an image.
According to Uppercase, which sells the book;
'As the practice and appreciation of hand-drawn type grows, it’s time to celebrate the work of those typographers whose every letterform is a work of art. Hand Job collects groundbreaking work from fifty of today’s most talented typographers who draw by hand. Graphic designer and hand typographer Michael Perry selects work representing the full spectrum of design methods and styles. Each hand-drawn work is entirely shaped by the artist’s unique process—every one a carefully executed composition enhanced by unplanned “accidents” of line, color, and craft.'

This is one very inspirational book for those of you who love typography.
