Shadow Type is the best book we have seen on the subject of dimensional type. A gallery of applied type: on packaging, printed ephemera, billboards or shop fronts, 1930s film screen grabs, and authentic original designers sourcebooks. This is an impressively wide collection of high quality photographs of originals, showing hundreds of examples of relief caps and type in use with shading or shadow, with original colours and layouts beautifully reproduced.
This is a stunning book, lovely to look at and great to use and exactly of the quality and accuracy of research you would expect from Steven Heller and Louise Fili. Illustrations:
