Kris Sowersby: The Art Of Letters
|Author||Mark Gowing ; Dave Foster Eds.|
Considered one of the leaders in his field, typeface designer Kris Sowersby founded Klim Type Foundry in 2005. Peruse a visual feast of letterforms in an examination of Sowersby’s practice where the characters and letters stand alone, as independent works of art. Explore their interconnections, individual function and form, and celebrate the absurd beauty involved in creating multiple expressions of predetermined alphabets through nuance and theory, removed from the context of language systems. The publication features over 750 large character illustrations selected from Sowersby’s award-winning typefaces, plus an essay by graphic designer and educator Paul McNeil.
