3D Typography

Co-authored with Emily Anderson, 3D Typography is a showcase of the work of over 100 designers, typographers, and artists who create typefaces out of everything from moss to human skin—literally returning heft to letters. A reaction to today’s typography, which is so often conceived via two-dimensional screens, the book expands upon letters built into three-dimensional forms—much like the beginning of stone and lead type.
