A Love Letter to Script Letters


While moving to a new house recently, and noticing the number of boxes labeled books outnumbered any other boxed category-by far, I realized I might have a ‘problem’. Don’t get me wrong, it is not a bad thing – I think, in fact I believe it is a must for any designer to own a small collection of books, whether it is because of cover design, content, reference, history or simply inspiration. And this book I want to share today might cover all those descriptions and more! Steven Heller and Louise Fili released a new book featuring beautiful lettering from Design’s Golden Age. Check it, love it and get it!

Introducing Steven Heller and Louise Fili’s latest collaboration, Scripts: Elegant Lettering from Design’s Golden Age. This book includes over three hundred examples of elegant and eccentric scripts from pre-Modern to Modern—from France, Italy, Germany, and England as well as the United States. Featuring type specimens, book covers, sheet music, children’s books, handwriting manuals, labels, advertisements and packages, this is a veritable festival of rare and unknown scripts between flexi-covers. Just published by Thames & Hudson, and available on Amazon.
