A-holes: A type book

SAMPLE BOOK:

http://csacreativestudio.com/book/sample.pdf

“Font” is a four letter word that starts with an “F”. At least that’s what I remember saying in college. Between Type and Design History classes, I was the student who struggled. I learned that good taste did not always equate to a good design. As an educator, I find myself reaching out especially to those students who tend to struggle as I did. They often have a good feel for design, but continue to fall short on execution. This coffee table book started as a side project with a running side joke, but as I dig deeper I hope that it reaches some of the students who are looking for an easier way to explore type.
