Typefaces come in thousands of shapes, sizes, and styles; types have histories and legacies. “Type Deck” identifies particular forms in historical periods and aesthetic contexts. Each of the fifty-four cards features a hand-drawn character, and provides insight into its historical context, design, and purpose. The collection is divided into six categories: Victorian, Arts & Crafts / Art Nouveau, Black Letter, Modern, Eclectic, and Post Modern and is a handy desk-sized resource that may, in fact, change your life in some significant way. If I were you I’d order not one, not two but three “Type Decks” while supplies last, for those in your immediate type family.
