A great book – the best I have found on modern typography

1000typetreatmentsThis book is about 24cm square and literally as it title says shows 1000 type treatments. If your typography is becoming a little stale this is a real eye opener. All though some of the designs are very ultra modern – if you applied similar styles to your traditional clients they would think you had gone completely mad (type overlaid so it looks great but highly illegible – so it works as an image rather than type) It is ideal if you want inspiration to try create something fresh and modern. There are of course more subdued corporate styles too.

Each page consists of a few pages of a brochure with close up of elements, the look of the book itself is also well designed. I was so impressed by this book I went out and bought another in the series – 1000 graphic elements, again a good book but not as good as this one.
