(Preface) 'Playing with Type will make you think differently about typography through fifty unique experiments that emphasize a hands-on creative approach. This book provides the impetus for designers - beginners and practicing - to get back to basics, experiment, and play with their craft.
The book is divided into six sections: Letter and Word Play, Project-based Play, Alphabet Play, Lettering Play, Playing with Context and Application, and Playing with Type with Friends.
Each spread is filled with images of project results, and examples of the project objectives applied in industry work. At any time you can flip through the book and select an experiment. There is no order to the contents; you are encouraged to use this book in your own way, at your own pace depending on your typographic mood.'
