TYPE PLAYER 3: TYPE AS EXPERIMENT, TYPE AS IMAGE. Gingko Press Inc., Berkeley, 2015. Published in association with Sandu Cultural Media Co., Ltd., Hong Kong. 240 pp. with 595 ills. (394 col.). 29 x 22 cm. ISBN 9781584235767 In English.
Publisher's description: Type Player 3 displays the best of types that demonstrate how designers don't just design type, but turn it into a subject of play with letters that go beyond the page to capture the unique needs and aesthetic preferences of designers and brands. The words and letters within exist as physical objects that embody the messages they spell out in their very design -- items of clothing demonstrate exactly what it means to be "colorful," long nights working on deadlines are represented in buzzing neon, and delicate curls of smoke show how beautiful a reminder in text can be. Type Player 3 contains creative examples collected worldwide, including editorial work, illustration, fashion, hand-made objects and environmental subjects, with 240 pages of lettering created from flowers, raindrops, food, and even the human body itself. The sequel to the best-selling Type Player 2, this title is essential for anyone looking for provocative new ways to get their message across.
