Box of 54 cards.....each one with an example of typography styles through the years. With information on the design, uses and designer.
"Typefaces come in thousands of shapes, sizes and styles.
Like verbal language, with all its nuances, dialects, accents and tics, typography is not simply a container of meanings but a translator too. Different faces say distinct things to many people. Type projects authority and frivolity. Type is communication on so many different levels of perception and reception.
Type Deck is a sampler of typographic personality and a primer of expressive visual communication. The letterforms are part of a shared language that have added to the diversity of graphic design. The Deck identifies characteristics and places particular forms in historical periods and aesthetic contexts. "
