Shoplifters #8 New Type Design -Revised/Expanded Edition!
One of our favourite books of 2019 has just had a make-over! The expanded and revised edition of Issue 8 of Actual Source's 'Shoplifters' is here, this time with almost 50 additional pages and 10 extra typefaces on show.
A beautifully published 645-page hardback book, 'New Type Design' contains 110 typefaces from over 60 contemporary designers who are 'getting a typeface to sublimate from 'new' to 'excellent'.
Shoplifters is a bi-annual publication published by Actual Source, which champions the work of graphic designers, typographers, artists, illustrators and writers.
This beast of a book feels like an academic library tome on the outside, but once you flip the cover you end up in a world of typographic maximalism - all presented in glorious blue and white.
