    New miniature version!   The ability to wield typography is one of those things that is a clear indication of a talented designer. Being able to craft type well and thoughtfully takes a deep understanding of the inherent complexities and a keen eye for the minute and subtle details. This book contains a collection of 1,000 instances of thoughtful type usage along with credits that note what fonts were used in the design. Like its predecessor, 1,000 Graphic Elements, the photography in this book focuses in on the typography so readers can get an up-close look at the work. 1,000 Type Treatments showcases an array of fonts in a catalog-like format, making it easy for the working designer to practically shop for ideas. The book is organized by style so if a designer has a traditional, elegant, or edgy piece, they can go directly to that section of the book, where they will find a wide collection of fresh ideas in the style they are seeking. Also included is a directory of font foundries and suppliers, providing busy designers with a quick reference guide to where they can find the fonts that pique their interest.

    Here is a nearly inexhaustible supply of copyright-free graphics filled with late 19th- and early 20th-century charm, ideal for a wide range of arts and crafts projects. Reproduced from the catalog of a famous French type foundry, it is a rich and authoritative source of advertising art of the period--filled with many delightful and arresting images not available elsewhere. An enormous array of objects, activities, and interests are depicted in finely detailed illustrations that lend themselves especially well to reproduction. Motifs include food and drink, domestic furnishings, vehicles, machines, tools and hardware, medical utensils, pharmaceuticals, farm animals and birds, as well as trades, sports, and music. Also included are fencers, golfers, insects, billiard tables, wrought-iron gates, architectural decorations, cows being milked, hunting dogs in the field, crowns and coronets, extravagantly carved breakfronts, elegant presentations of food, and much, much more. In addition, a large section is devoted to ornate banners, mortised cuts, and other line art specifically intended for typographical use. While the cuts in this collection range in style from genre realism to Art Nouveau, the images--beautifully realized in scrupulous and revealing detail--have a timeless appeal ideal for a wide variety of graphic uses. Original Dover (1991) selection of cuts from Cliches & Gravures, originally published by Fonderie Deberny & Cie, Paris, n.d.
