Shadow typefaces are back in style, and the hundreds of inventive examples here – many uncovered from obscure sources across Europe and the United States – will inspire any designer seeking to make a strong statement.

Drawn from a rich period in the history of shadow type, from the 19th to the mid-20th century, this is the first compilation of popular, rare and forgotten three-dimensional letters from Germany, France, Britain, Italy and the United States.

With examples from some 300 sources compiled by the leading historian of graphic design, this lively book, packed full of typographic ideas, will enchant and inspire anyone aiming to impart depth to their design.
