Hand Job: A Catalog of Type 



This catalog features the work of 55 typographers who draw by hand. Perry, a graphic designer and typographer, presents the work alphabetically by typographer, along with short biographies of them, for whom or what the piece was done, and its media. Designs are for t-shirts, posters, typeface, advertisements, or come from personal projects.
