typography art

I’ve been obsessed with typography for over 25 years – everything from monograms to fonts to letterpress. My house is filled with letters. Put a letter or a word on something and I’m drawn to it like a bear to honey. So I was intrigued by Jonathan Safran Foer’s new book which celebrates the word and an overlooked paper art – the die cut.

I think many people, including myself, are wondering what the future of publishing holds. I love technology, but can’t imagine a world without the printed word. JSF’s new work celebrates what makes books unique in an otherwise digital age.
