I picked up this new-in item at Magma this weekend, "Type Compass" published by SHS. Edited by Emilio Macchia and Michael Brenner, it's not the average typography book and there's a couple of reasons why, reasons also why I chose to purchase. Firstly it focuses on the evolution of type design and therefore its future, featuring influential designers, foundries and of course fonts that are "charting new routes" of much innovation and potential. Also the book itself is neatly formatted and laid out, encouraging users to scribble and interact within, with queues including blank pages and tips. It looks fascinating and I look forward to delve in. The following pictures show some of the inside works, provided by SHS Publishing.
