Publishing whirlwind Steven Heller is back, this time with Lita Talarico, the co-founder
of the School of Visual Arts MFA Design Program in New York City. In Freehand they turn their editors eyes on designers sketchbooks where hand-drawn letterforms run riot. Inside there are over 800 illustrations from over 75 type designers, calligraphers, graphic designers, graffiti artists and more.
Refreshing to see a real diversity in the examples given, especially in the weighting of both Latin and non-Latin forms of script. With insight from the artists themselves, Freehand allows a peek into the creative processes of some of the most innovative and exciting pen, brush and pencil wielders out there.
