Lettering & Type

LttrType.bookRGB.jpg

Written by Post Typography partners Bruce Willen and Nolen Strals, this handbook on type design and custom lettering is a smart-but-not-dense guide to creating and bending letters to one’s will. Lettering & Type’s cover embodies its accessible and comprehensive approach, splicing together divergent examples of lettered and typographic ampersands.
