Featuring a wealth of sketches, precision drawings, and computer-generated artwork, as well as a range of styles, concepts, languages, and alphabets, Free Hand illustrates the idiosyncratic creative processes behind the design of typefaces, logos, and word-images.

In Free Hand – New Typography Sketchbooks, Steven Heller, respected graphic-design commentator, and Lita Talarico, design educator, offer glimpses inside the personal sketchbooks of more than 70 designers and typographers—including Philippe Apeloig, Ed Beguiat, Hoefler & Co., Henrik Kubel, Toshi Omagari, and Francesco Zorzi.

A valuable resource for anyone who engages creatively with type—whether by hand or on a screen—this rich compendium emphasizes the power of typography in the digital age, while celebrating designers who continue to innovate in their practice of this time-honored craft.
