New Modernist Type
Steven Heller and Gail Anderson
Classic modern design never goes out of style: it is merely retired or subtly adapted to its given place and time. New Modernist Type is a collection that reveals how a graphic language of simplicity and economy has impacted contemporary design. Hundreds of modern examples by international designers are grouped into four thematic chapters: ‘Economy, Pure and Simple’; ‘Old Modern Redux’; ‘Modern Signs and Symbols’; and ‘New, Newer, Newest’. With an historical introduction putting today’s tendencies in context and a reference section that includes a list of designers’ websites, New Modernist Type is a rich sourcebook of ideas for the most functional of styles.
