Wanted: The 3D Type Book


It’s time for type to get up off the page and into the world. The 3D Type Book is a comprehensive showcase of three-dimensional typefaces and letterforms, featuring over 160 designers and 300 projects (and over 1,300 photographs) from the simple to the cellular, using unconventional materials like cheese, pebbles, and human skin . The book, which covers typography from the 1940’s to today, was compiled by Agathe Jacquillat and Tomi Vollauschek at the London multidisciplinary design studio FL@33, and looks to be a gorgeous meditation on the ways we can interact with type – and the way type can interact with us. Click through to see some of the amazing work from the book and watch a video about the project.

To flip through the whole book (!), watch this video (we recommend full screen):

The 3D Type Book is published by Laurence King and will be available in the US April 20.
