While some artists and designers do use fonts as a base from which to work, others rely solely on their memory and knowledge. They use their visual communication skills to further add expression, hierarchy, and, in turn, meaning to the words.
This is not to say that typography using existing fonts is any less important than original lettering. There is of course still a very necessary role for strong and informed typography, and illustrative lettering is by no means appropriate for use everywhere. But the fact that lettering celebrates words and letters, elevating them to an image-equivalent status, is something I hope will bring renewed importance to typography and craftsmanship.
In my new book The Little Book of Lettering I try to show some of the brilliant new work being created by today's lettering artists. US Dimensions cm: Help Centre. My Wishlist Sign In Join.

There are a range of hand-drawn typefaces and digitally created typefaces so you can see the differences and the variation between them and overall this really is a must-have li A stunning book with a tremendous amount of typefaces and information about the different designers packed into it for the small size.
