Book Review #11: Hand Job: A Catalog of Type


I picked up this book at my local bookstore McNally's, and I love it. Its pretty much a collection of hand created type in alphabetical order by designer. I was so inspired I went to Pearls with an almost depleted bank account and bought myself a ton of supplies to start making stuff, an exacto knife, cuttingmat, tracing paper, watercolor paper, really nice watercolors (30% off!) micron pens, a pica ruler, mechanical pencils, brushes, thumbtacks, the works...so I'm trying to finish up some projects so I can start doing my own thing. My workspace is looking a little more professional now hehe. Work is good, I'm actually getting to work on some cool things for Balenciaga and CK and some other stuff so we'll see.
