Product description

Review

"To say that this is a brilliant book is an understatement. Dave Addey has succeeded in making an under-estimated topic as fonts a really interesting subject." -- SFcrowsnest

"Typeset in the Future: Typography and Design in Science Fiction Movies by Dave Addey shifts the focus to pop culture, exploring the use of typography and graphic design to represent the future in classic science sci-fi movies." -- Buzzfeed

"the text isn’t just informative―it’s also very funny, from his tongue-in-cheek rules for setting your text in the FUTURE to non-typographical observations about technology. I learned a lot of fun trivia about various movies, things that I never would have noticed" -- GeekDad

"Typeset in the Future is an obsessively geeky study of how classic sci-fi movies draw us in to their imagined worlds―and how they have come to represent “THE FUTURE” in popular culture." -- Forces of Geek

"This dense volume provides a focused, yet humorous study of seven classic sci-fi movies – A Space Odyssey, Star Trek: The Motion Picture, Alien, Blade Runner, Total Recall, WALL-E and Moon – all of which have made use of Aldo Novarese’s Eurostile Bold Extended." -- Eye Magazine
