Description: This is the book that graphic designers and type aficionados have been waiting for: the first book in Chronicle's Art Deco design series devoted exclusively to type. Garnered from vintage specimen sheets and catalogs as well as commercial design artifacts from Germany, France, Japan, Holland, Italy, Russia, Eastern Europe, and the United States, these alphabets illustrate how the stunning style of the twenties and thirties extended to every facet of graphic design, including the typographer's art. Deco typestyles, like Deco architecture and furniture, were the heralds of the Machine Age, designed to embody progress. Endowed with a jazzy modernistic sensibility and baptized with evocative futuristic names such as Vulcan and Metropolis, these spectacular typefaces paved the way for a new era of communication via the printed word. In Deco Type, the team of Steven Heller and Louise Fili have brought together a unique collection of wonderful typefaces - many that have lain hidden for decades - to create an inspirational reference for designers and graphic artists everywhere.
