Can you really compare experimental 3D typography – like lettering made of live moss or letter kites that fly messages in the sky – to the work of Gutenberg? If you ask Jeanette Abbink, Emily CM Anderson and the over 100 international designers, typographers and artists featured in 3D Typography, the answer is a resounding yes.
Abbink and Anderson have compiled this book as a reaction to the fact that so much of today’s typography is conceived via screens. Like Gutenberg and generations of typeface designers who worked with physically shaped lead type the featured artists in 3D Typography return the literal heft to letters.
