Typolyrics - The Sound of Fonts

15 Jul 2010

We just got our hands on TypoLyrics a book about music and typefaces. This new publication by Slanted, presents the works of several celebrated graphic designers as well as talented young designers from around the world, who use typefaces to give shape to lyrics of more than 170 songs from new wave and disco to metal and hip hop. The result is awesome. Eleven chapters of a well organized book with each chapter presenting a different typeface category and a different style of music. In this publication, two Parachute typefaces Centro Slab Pro and Ornamental Treasures were selected and presented in the Hip Hop and Rock ‘n’ Roll/Swing categories by Benedict Rohrer and Jonas Beuchert. Surely this is a must have book for your library.
