Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

For the past fifty-seven years, the Type Directors Club (TDC) has encouraged the graphic arts community to achieve excellence in typography through its annual competitions. Typography 32 is the latest Annual devoted exclusively to typography and presents the finest work in this field from 2010. Selected from more than 1,500 international submissions to TDC57, the 208 winning designs are models of excellence and innovation in contemporary type design. This year's selection encompasses a wide range of categories, including books, magazines, corporate identity, logotypes, stationery, annual reports, video and Web graphics, and posters. Each winning entry is displayed in full color and is accompanied by complete information about the designer, client, typography, and more. This year's volume also features the results of the club's fourteenth annual type design competition, TDC2 2011 and TDC Intro 011, the movie titles competition, and includes a special index listing the principal typefaces used in the winning designs and the names of their designers.

The Judges' Choice sections feature the winning entries that have been singled out as each judge's favorite; these pieces are accompanied not only by the judges' comments but also by statements from the designers about the creative process involved in developing their work. These components–along with chairperson statements by Roberto de Vicq de Cumptich (TDC57), James Montalbano (TDC2 2011), and Jakob Trollbäck (TDC Intro 011)–exemplify the enormous vitality of the ever-changing typo­graphy profession today.

A special section contains the seventh TDC catalog, reproduced in its entirety; it was published in 1962 and records winning designs completed over 1961. From 1955 to 1978, the competition catalog was produced as a relatively modest booklet. In 1979, after twenty-five years, the TDC Annual became a book. That explains why this Annual is called Typography 32, while this year's competition is called TDC57.

About the Author

Each year, the Type Directors Club selects a prominent design studio or designer for the latest Typography book, which showcases the winners of their annual typography competition. Tremendous creative freedom is given to each studio, which is why this annual book evolves and varies from year to year.

The designer of Typography 31 is Paul Sahre. Paul is a well-known graphic designer, illustrator, educator, author and former World Graphic Design Foosball Champion. Paul established his New York studio in 1997. The balance he strikes between commercial and personal projects is evident in the physical layout of his workspace: part design studio, part silkscreen lab, part classroom. In one room he designs and prints posters (some now in the permanent collection at the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum) for various off-off Broadway theaters, while in the other room he is busy designing book covers for authors such as Rick Moody, Chuck Klosterman, Ben Marcus and Victor Pelevin.

Paul received his BFA and MFA in graphic design from Kent State and teaches graphic design at the School of Visual Arts. He is a frequent contributor to the New York Times Op-Ed page, a member of Alliance Graphic International, and the author of Leisurama Now: The Beach House for Everyone, 1964-, a loving look at a short-lived product of early '60s consumer optimism: affordable middle-class summer homes.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I love the cover, main reason I got it. But it doesn't really represent what's inside. It's a sorted selection of typography from all variety of artists around the world. So, if you are in any way interested in typography, hand lettering and the like, this book is a good addition to someone's library. It's large, heavy and has a nice hardcover.
