Filled with examples from a broad spectrum of sources - advertising, street signs, invitations, type-specimen books, personal letters - this collection will be a delight for designers and an invaluable sourcebook of long-overlooked lettering. From wedding announcements to IOUs, there are hundreds, perhaps thousands, of scripts, some ‘classic’, others eccentric. Whether elegant, quirky, fluid, brutish or ostentatious, these typefaces are stylized to suggest, imply or symbolize certain traits linked to handwriting. The 'Golden Age' of scripts ran from the 19th to the mid-20th century; this book presents an unparalleled compilation of popular, rare and forgotten scripts from that era, from many countries. Contents - Introduction: Elegance & Eccentricity, 1 French/L’écriture, 2 British/Scripts, 3 German/Der Schrift , 4 Italian/Il Corviso, 5 American/Scripts. Steven Heller is co-chair of the MFA Design/Designer as Author and Entrepreneur program at New York’s School of Visual Arts. He is the author, editor and co-author of over 140 books, including fifteen with Louise Fili. He is the recipient of the 2011 Smithsonian Institution National Design Award for ‘Design Mind’. Louise Fili is principal of Louise Fili Ltd, a New York City-based design firm specializing in restaurant identities and food packaging. The author of Italianissimo, she was inducted into the Art Directors Club Hall of Fame in 2004.
