Just My Type is a book of stories. About how Helvetica and Comic Sans took over the world. About why Barack Obama opted for Gotham, why Amy Winehouse found her soul in 30s Art Deco. About the great originators of type, from Baskerville to Zapf, and people like Neville Brody who threw out the rulebook. About the pivotal moment when fonts left the world of Letraset and were loaded onto computers ... and typefaces became something we realized we all have an opinion about.
