A book celebrating women in the type industry
Femme Type is an all-female publication conceptualised by ex UAL Chelsea graphic design communication student Amber Weaver aiming to celebrate over 40 skilled, international women exercising their talents in the type industry. Femme Type’s purpose is to create a valuable stage and platform for designers to showcase their brilliant typographic achievements wrapped up in a wonderful printed format. To create a valuable source of inspiration and education for future and established designers across the globe.
Femme Type is separated into three sections:

A discussion about typewriter typefaces and their Influence on new digital fonts by Alphabettes.org contributor & co-founder of Kinetic, María Ramos.
