Hand Job: A Catalog of Type- 10.12.07

*Snicker* Yes, I love the cheeky title. Hand Job: A Catalog of Type by Michael Perry (published by Princeton Architectural Press) is full of unique and quirky hand-drawn typography. It makes me remember the days of junior high when I was trying so hard to establish my handwriting style, the years in high school when I embellished the letters on the notes I wrote to friends, and the random doodles that ended up on the margins of my lecture notes in college. Fifty-five typographers and graphic designers, including Geoff McFetridge and Deanne Cheuk, are featured in the book, and they are all listed in alphabetical order. Their names appear at the bottom of the pages which I found pretty handy for reference. Great to flip through for some quick inspiration, and I definitely want to start drawing words again to balance out the computer-based work I do! Some of my favorite pages from the book after the jump!
