One of the most comprehensive surveys of type ever published, TYPE IMAGE showcases contemporary works that challenge the type/image divide. Letters, words and phrases in TYPE IMAGE are playfully crafted into landscapes, portraits, objects, or textures and patterns. Attention is paid to punctuation, pictorial typefaces and designers' takes on the contemporary mainstream use of emoticons. The accompanying text illuminates the history and relevancy of images composed from type.
