Massive and majestic, moving and motivating, this huge book of alphabets makes our hearts beat a little faster. It’s loaded with large, hand-drawn display alphabets that’re just begging to be turned into typefaces. There is so much inspiring work here. Eugen Nerdinger and Lisa Beck have prepared forty-eight unique sets of lettering to be used and adapted by designers and architects for whatever we might need. We’re not sure why this book isn’t known and used by every designer. From the first page to the last, it is as beautiful as it is useful. A+++.
