hands-on lettering

In Hand Job (Princeton architectural Press), Michael Perry selects some delicious hand-lettering from an array of designers & typographers. From the Amazon review:

In this digital age of computer-generated graphics and typography, it’s refreshing to find typographers who still believe in working by hand. No longer relegated to designer’s sketchbooks, hand-drawn type has emerged from the underground as a dynamic vehicle for visual communication—from magazine, book, and album covers to movie credits and football advertisements. As the practice and appreciation of hand-drawn type grows, it’s time to celebrate the work of those typographers whose every letterform is a work of art.
