Departures: Five Milestone Font Families by Emigre
Published by Emigre
This book celebrates the acquisition of five Emigre font families by The Museum of Modern Art in New York in 2011. The digital fonts are Keedy Sans, Mason Serif, Template Gothic, Oakland, and Dead History. These fonts were added to the Architecture and Design Collection as part of a selection of 23 digital typefaces documenting milestone designs covering the twentieth century. The acquisition followed in the footsteps of the Museum's first ever typeface acquisition, a case of 36-point Helvetica Bold lead type.
Inspired by the title of the accompanying exhibit Standard Deviations, we selected some of the most unique characters from each of these five Emigre fonts and compared them visually to Helvetica, it's predecessor in the collection.
144 pages, 5 x 8 inches, black and white, soft cover. Book price includes shipping via US mail.
This book is also available at the Blurb online bookstore.
