THE 3D TYPE BOOK REVIEW
The 3D Type Book
Written and designed by FL@33
Laurence King, 240pp., $30

The London design firm FL@33 has pulled together one of the most comprehensive collections of 3-D typography ever. This look at handmade and innovative three-dimensional type illustrates the new wave of appreciation for all things non-digital. With more than 1,300 photos, it makes a strong point about the limitations of computer-driven typography, focusing on the exciting potential of new and strange materials. Employing things like skin, clothing, and food to create letterforms, designers are giving a new meaning to the expression “the words jumping off the page.”
