The Briem Report 2012


Renowned Icelandic type designer, calligrapher and publisher, Gunnlaugur SE Briem has put together a book on lettering that captures a moment in time. 


With over a hundred contributors from all over the globe, subjects include graffiti, handwriting, calligraphy, lettering, type design, typography and research. Although subjects vary, all are united in their love of letters and each has created a double page spread to discuss current work.


I've contributed myself and was delighted to see many of my favourite artists listed in the contents page. It's an eclectic and inspirational read, includes an amusing introduction by Briem himself and what's more - it's free. You can download your own copy from operina.com.
