Femme Type: A Book Celebrating Women In The Type Industry.
Femme Type author/curator Amber Weaver brings the purpose of this fantastic typographic volume into focus when she says in her intro that surely there must be more women out in the design world producing inspiring work than is visible in the typography books crowding our shelves. There are of course, and in this volume the work of nearly 50 inspiring women working in the type industry is presented over 272 pages.
Split into 2 chapters, Type Design and Typography, Femme Type is a contemporary showcase of excellence and deserves to find its place among the typography staples. With essays from Maria Ramos and TienMin Liao and profiles on each of the designers included as well as highlights of their best work, this isn't merely another coffee table type book - it is full of information and insight and is a worthy addition to any typographer or graphic designer's bookshelf.
