Format: Hardcover
A seriously enormous undertaking, "Adrian Frutiger Typefaces" is the definitive book on the type design work of Adrian Frutiger. From his beginnings to his latest designs, each face ever designed is displayed, compared, commented upon, and put into context.

Along with massive amounts of detail on each typeface Frutiger designed, there is a great deal of information explaining the technologies that were used and the advancements in type design over the past century. This is not only a book just on Frutiger's designs, but a book about the process of designing a typeface down to the smallest detail.

Recommended for anyone that has even the smallest appreciation of type and type design!

A beautifully crafted book about the one absolute master of modern Type Design. The result is sheer perfection. This book will bring hours of delight to any serious student and teacher of typography. The personal insights by Frutiger himself about the creation and story of his typefaces are priceless and offer plenty of food for thought on type design and its integration with signage and landscape design. Quite possibly one of the most beautiful book on typography ever designed.
I wish I could grant six stars.

By far one the most insightful book on type design I've read. It's like you're talking to Frutiger and hearing straight from him how each and every one of his typefaces came about. I'm in love with this book. It's huge, it has loads of information and detail.
