Japanese interiors focus primarily on one simple philosophy, Zen. All the rooms in a traditionally furnished Japanese home strive to achieve a balance of peace and simplicity; their interiors are steeped in centuries of cultural influence, and a sense of calm is key to the whole aesthetic. This handbook shows how to create a tailor-made Japanese home. Working through the house one room at a time, it highlights classic items of furniture and signature accessories, from tatami mats and paper lanterns to shoji (dividing screens). In-depth case studies demonstrate the essential elements and provide inspiration, while colour combinations are explored to help personalize this iconic style for the home. Anyone who hankers after the Japanese look and is eager to bring it to their own home will find this book a valuable resource.

The Evolution of Type takes the reader on a journey through the development of type design and typographic style from the mid-15th century to the present day, by way of 100 typefaces. Chosen to represent the key elements of style and form used by the punch cutters, calligraphers and designers of their day, and presented in chronological order according to release date, each typeface is discussed in terms of its origins and its impact on the design and print industry, and latterly the additional considerations for screen use. Versions released in metal-foundry type for hand-setting, as hot-metal type for the monotype and linotype machines, as phototype, and as digital revivals or originals, are covered in detail alongside information about the people responsible for the design and development of each adaptation of the typeface. Key glyphs from each face are annotated to indicate the specific features that mark out how typeface design has evolved over the last 500 or so years, and visual comparisons illustrate how typefaces created years ago have influenced the design of many contemporary releases. For the general reader, this book offers a thorough history of the typefaces we have been reading for decades; for typographers and designers, it is a valuable resource that will help to inform their choice of the most appropriate typeface for a project.

Typeface combinations don't always work together naturally. For an experienced designer, the process becomes largely intuitive after years of practice, but even seasoned professionals sometimes struggle to come up with the perfect typeface pairing. It's often obvious what not to use, but it's less obvious what you should use when a range of good typefaces can differ in very subtle ways. Developed with typographers, graphic designers and font geeks in mind, Type Team is the ultimate guide for anyone wishing to get to grips with the best techniques for combining individual typefaces from all classifications and styles for any category of creative project. It explores 150 typeface combinations grouped into 25 contrasting categories, ranging from Classical and Scholarly to Edgy and Vibrant, and with a full page devoted to each entry. In addition, 50 typographic principles are paired with selected combinations and illustrated using the typefaces from the spread. Within the pages of this unique reference for font spotters, designers, and users, the perfect typeface combination for any creative project can be found.

Every creative brief requires its own unique typographic solution to achieve both individuality and visual harmony. This is why the question "what's the best typeface combination?" is impossible to answer succinctly. Typefaces are a bit like people; their personalities can alter ever so slightly when you bring them together in different groups. A stern Geometric san serif can act the part of a plain disciplinarian when standing next to an equally restrained Transitional serif, but can become light-hearted and playful when it encounters a lively Casual script or a burly Slab serif face. Choosing typefaces that work well together is ultimately as subjective as it is scientific, as personal as it is informed, and as debated as it is agreed upon. The suggested type combinations illustrated throughout this book are designed to provide the information and inspiration you need to make the best choices you can when bringing typefaces together. A book for typographers, graphic designers, and font geeks alike. Type teams are compiled from a pool of two hundred handpicked typeface families. Typefaces from over fifty world-class type foundries and type designers. One hundred and forty nine type team combinations with up to four individual typeface families utilized for each. Thirty two themed sections to allow quick access to the required mood for your individual projects. Ten key principles to help you make the right typeface choices for your creative assignments. Fourteen "tricks" to apply when selecting and combining typefaces from your personal collection.
