Designed by why not associates, who are themselves at the cutting edge of today's new typography, and with a lucid commentary by rick poynor, editor of eye, Britain's most adventurous graphics magazine, typography now demonstrates the high levels of innovation and creativity being achieved by people who work with type. As a guide to current trends it will be invaluable. as an insight into typographic thinking, it maps the minds of those for whom type really matters today.'
