This week, the Creative Bloq office has been going typography crazy, and it's due in no small part to this brilliant and inspiring book from visual communication gurus Viction:ary (opens in new tab) called Typoholic (opens in new tab).
Typoholic is a two-pronged look at modern type-making from both commercial and personal projects. In two separate sections, starting at each cover, the book introduces more than 40 new illustrative and animated type families plus 200 pages of weird and wonderful ad-hoc projects featuring custom type designs.
The 'Font to Form' section is crammed with logo marks, campaign installations, digital rendering, performance art, and more. We particularly love Toby and Pete's alphanumerical bouncy castle and Juri Zaech's elegant pushbikes, and there are many more examples of creative typography from the playful to the thought-provoking - and all fastidiously constructed.
Meanwhile, the 'A to Z' section contains 27 meticulously-composed, contemporary typefaces, inspired by (and created with) everything from elastic bands to balloon animals and train sets.
Typoholic is a celebration of the craft involved in the creation of interesting typefaces, and an inspiration to those involved in creative design at any level.
The book is available now (opens in new tab) priced at £34.50.
NOTE: The competition to win copies has now closed.
