Just my Type: A Book About Fonts – Mobile UX London

Just My Type is not just a fonts book, but a book of stories. About how Helvetica and Comic Sans took over the world. About why Barack Obama opted for Gotham. While Amy Winehouse found her soul in 30s Art Deco. About the great originators of type, from Baskerville to Zapf. Or people like Neville Brody who threw out the rulebook. Or Margaret Calvert, who invented the motorway signs that are used from Watford Gap to Abu Dhabi.

About the pivotal moment when font left the world of Letraset and were loaded onto computers … And typefaces became something we realised we all have an opinion about.
