Graphic designers are approaching type design in a refreshingly new manner and creating typography beyond the classical typeset. Playful Type demonstrates how these designers are creating a dynamic range of playful, illustrative and hand-made typography with the aide of a multitude of different techniques. From manual lettering, calligraphy and collage to manipulative time exposures of photographs and even ice blocks, the cutting-edge examples collected in this inspiring book indicate current developments in type design.
