Type Spaces explores the new meanings that become apparent in text when we can touch it or otherwise inhabit it — as image, form and language converge. It turns out that we have fascinating encounters with typography as it enters three-dimensional space, interacting in ways that go beyond the boundaries of what the page or screen allows. Type Spaces puts forward the best examples of these experiences by gathering examples of typographic hybrids in architecture, interiors, furniture, jewelry and other objects. Sixty-eight esteemed firms, artists and designers such as Emerystudio, Why Not Associates, Indigobronze, Pentagram Design, Paula Scher and EINE Signs contribute works organized into four chapters; Architecture, Installations, Shop Display and Outdoor.
