Revival of the Fittest

Item Details

The digital revolution has inspired designers to create a proliferation of contemporary versions of the great classic typefaces. Revival of the Fittest, a new book from the publishers of Print magazine, examines and explains the surge of interest in these revivals. Profusely illustrated with digital versions of Bodoni, Caslon, Garamond, grotesques, and others, these faces are compared to their metal-type originals and presented through imaginative applications in magazines, ads, books, and posters by outstanding graphic designers. The authors interview leading typeface revivalists including Jonathan Hoefler, Tobias Frere-Jones, and Matthew Carter; whose observations provide an understanding of design process and objectives behind their versions of these faces. Stunningly designed in full color with innovative diagrams, lucid type specimens, and scores of innovative applications of the featured faces, Revival of the Fittest demonstrates that classic is "cutting edge" in the digital age.
