The book itself took a very long time to produce mainly down to the layouts, and so far I am delighted in how well it’s been received. Not only is it currently Amazons #1 best selling Typography book, but it’s also due to appear in 5 major design magazines over the coming months. I’m looking forward to many more volumes, and thanks to everyone for the support! If you haven’t got a copy of the book yet, you can grab one from the link below where it’s currently available to buy on Amazon. Please bare in mind this is a limited edition run, and once they’re gone, they’re gone!
