Description


"A labour of loving typographic archaeology by the type designer and illustrator Rian Hughes" Eye, Winter 2010/2011

Custom Lettering of the 40s & 50s is a celebration of the stunning and stylistically varied headline lettering that predated modern computer type. Each a unique one-off, custom hand-drawn lettering had a stylistic freedom and creative energy unfettered by traditional typographic rules and regulations.

This unique publication collects over 4,500 examples of custom lettering - from urgent rough block capitals to sophisticated looping copperplate scripts, elegant fashion brush scripts and dynamic illustrative sans serifs, the extraordinary range of graphic styles is as exciting as it is stylistically diverse.

Custom Lettering of the 40s & 50s is an essential handbook for typographers, graphic designers, art directors, design students, and, of course, retro culture fans, lettering aficionados and printed ephemera collectors.

Text in English, German & French.
