Typography #31: Typography 31by Type Directors Club
Synopses & Reviews
The Type Directors Club presents its annual showcase of the year's best typographic work in this visually provocative, far-reaching compendium of innovative, successful design strategies. Following in the footsteps of previous Typography editors such as Shanon Werner and Emily Oberman, design guru Paul Sahre uses his background in off-Broadway poster art and book jacket design (for authors such as Rick Moody, Chuck Klosterman, Ben Marcus, and Victor Pelevin) to uncover, collate, and illuminate the years most unique and effective uses of typography in books, magazines, stationery, web graphics, and more. Typography 31 is a must-have for every professional graphic designer, and a peerless asset to anyone looking for insight into what makes design work.
For over fifty years, the Type Directors Club has encouraged the worldwide graphic arts community to achieve excellence in typography through its annual international competitions. Typography 31 is the only annual devoted exclusively to typography and presents the finest work in this field for the year 2009. Selected from approximately 2300 international submissions to the annual Type Directors Club competition, the winning designs are models of excellence and innovation in the use of type design, encompassing a wide range of categories, including books, magazines, corporate identities, logo types, stationery, annual reports, video and web graphics, and posters.
