Listening to Type by Alex W. White

It's always a great idea to have some type of inspiration to help you design. Therefore, when I read the book, Listening to Type by Alex W. White I felt a bit at ease and my brain flowing with creative ideas. The book is organized with many illustrated visuals of type and different topics that many books don't cover. Some information on Language of Type, Typographic Unity, Type and Identity and even Readability and Legibility can be found inside. However, these are just a few topics covered and what you might find the book best for is to get your personality out on paper with the type you use. That is how I feel when reading and looking at visuals in this book!

So it's easy to say that this book gave me the right inspiration I need to design my own creative type. It's easier to get an idea what type is by the visuals you see inside. From letters that are large and bold, 3D or just about anything, it can help so much! I guess it can also be considered a book for those interested in the subject of Type. It's very easy to use and mainly a wonderful inspiring guide. I think my favorite is the many illustrated visuals you can see and all sorts that I had no idea about creating. Finally, this is a great book and so packed with examples and inspiration, as I've mentioned quite a lot! ☺
