Indie Fonts 2:
Independent type designers have devoted their talents to producing fresh new fonts that can give your text a major boost. Indie Fonts 2 provides a showcase collection of over 1600 diverse fonts from 19 of today's hottest digital type foundries and features the best work of these designers. Indie Fonts 2 will help you find some of the highest quality fonts available today.
In the early 20th century, type reference books provided users with samples from the major monolithic type companies. This book is styled after those classic tools, but features independent firms whose fonts, like their names, are unique.
The books fully cross-referenced index of type designs and designers (Indie Fonts 2 indexes the original Indie Fonts as well!), accompanied by one-line illustrations of the fonts for quick reference, expedites the search. Direct access listings to the foundries websites and phone numbers, allows the user to put any remaining questions directly to the type designers!
Indie Fonts 2 comes with a companion CD-ROM—worth far more than the retail cost of the bookfeaturing 38 representative fonts from the book's independent foundries (fully licensed and ready to install). Searching the web and looking at pixilated web images is not a satisfactory way to find the best type for your needs. Using this book and CD-ROM is a far better method to find unique fontsfrom the extremely useful to the surprisingly experimental. Also included is the essay: Typocurious, and how to stay that way by noted typographer Peter Bain.
Indie Fonts 2 is
a must-have for designers,
artists, aesthetes, publishers, advertisers, and hobbyistsin
fact, for anyone with something to say.
