Low-cost and mass-producible, stencil type is the world’s most universally used style, seen on everything from bridges to bags, from street signs to packaging. And because they are an affordable means of mass communication, stencils are often employed by populist, rebellious and street-art movements.

Hundreds of international examples, chosen from the late 19th century to the 20th, are brought together in a compact package that will provide endless inspiration for typographical ideas. Packed with examples from a broad range of locations and objects – construction hoardings, footlockers, wine barrels, shipping containers and so much more – Stencil Type represents a unique and highly curated choice based on decades of graphic-design experience and knowledge.

This is a companion to the cult typography volumes Scripts and Shadow Type, perennial favourites among designers looking for fresh and unexpected ideas in historical type.
