INDIE TYPE. Typefaces and Creative Font Application in Design
Indie Type includes a series of typefaces selected by their innovative, aesthetic, or adaptable approach, including a representation of their use in different international projects. It also features a series of interviews to 5 representative typeface designers who provide an account of the creative process behind designing a typeface, how it was created, and how it displays in design. This book will serve as an inspiration for those who are interested in fonts design and want to create something new. Indie Type would probably be the best way for them to get inspired.
