Hello, TypeDrawers community!
I thought some of you might be interested to know that my book Standby,
which I've been working on for eight years, is out today. The book is not about typography — it focuses on a different form of design — but it's relevant to this forum chiefly because, after much negotiation, my publisher permitted me to design and typeset the volume myself. This, of course, is practically unheard of. I worked on the design for over a year, and then set the type in a couple of weeks, with constant correspondence with and input from the publisher.
There is much that I could say about the design, and indeed I've considered writing an article about it at some point, but I won't go into too much detail here.
Sample pages from the book can be seen here
, and more information about the book itself is here
My best to all of you,
