Shadow Type free pdf The first-ever compilation of shadow typefaces is now available in paperback. Letters with relief and shadow have long been an effective way to add spectacle or intrigue to otherwise mundane words. Shadow Type presents a broad spectrum of examples--advertising, shop signs, billboards, posters, type-specimen books-- drawn from the nineteenth to the mid-twentieth century, a particularly rich period in the history of shadow type. Compiled by the leading historian of graphic design, Steven Heller, and renowned graphic designer Louise Fili, this invaluable collection, packed full of typographic ideas, will inspire anyone aiming to give more depth to their design.
