How Many Female Type Designers Do You Know? | Yulia Popova
Amber Weaver's recent 'Femme Type' shone a light on women working within type design, posing the question why are women in design largely invisible amongst their male colleagues, especially when the work being produced is world class?
In 'How Many Female Type Designers Do You Know', author and designer Yulia Popova takes the baton and runs with it, placing the discipline of type design in a framework which combines research on gender issues in the field, a look at the work of early female type designers, interviews with 14 contemporary practitioners and finally a 100 page showcase off typefaces designed by women.
Handsomely published in hardback by Onomatopee and beautifully set, this book is an important addition to the field of typography.
