Yay! Hooray! And Hello! Welcome to Goodtype The Book, Volume One.

For the past two years, we have watched in awe as this community of letterers and admirers has grown to over 250,000 people. And now it's time for our biggest announcement yet!

We couldn't be more excited to share with you this first hard cover compilation of curated works from 175 artists worldwide (pictured above). Each featured artist showcases two pieces: a work in progress sketch and the final piece. The collection encompasses a multitude of lettering styles from hand lettering, to computer generated 3D-type, to hand painted murals, to traditional calligraphy. With over 2,000 submissions, we really picked the cream of the crop.

Featuring works by artists like Raul Alejandro, Maia Then, Rob Draper, and Scott Biersack and interviews with Roxy Prima, Tony DiSpigna, Joseph Alessio, and more!

Risks and challenges

International Shipping- UGH. We've researched, scoured, and sweat over the challenge of getting this book to our friends across the globe at a reasonable price. Sending a 4lb hardback book anywhere outside the U.S. comes at a pretty penny, no matter how hard we tried to make magic happen.
The costs we arrived at are based on current international shipping rates and, in cases of shipping multiple books, the flat-rate boxes were the best option.
We are so grateful to this WORLDWIDE community of supporters and cannot wait for you to hold this book in your hands.
Those of you who know Goodtype, know we like to communicate A LOT. You'll be hearing from us throughout the campaign AND after to be sure everyone stays up to date and in the know.
