Cast of Characters

Gibbs, David


1st Edition

Small 8vo. Black cloth boards with silver lettering. Full-page colour illustrations of letters of the alphabet by leading graphic designers. Unpaginated. *** To mark their 30 years of making signs, Wood & Wood invited 34 leading designers to device three-dimensional letters in any form or material they chose. Wood & Wood then made the letters and they were shown at the Cast of Characters exhibition held at the Pentagram Gallery in London during April and May 1998. This book continues Wood & Wood’s celebrations. It uses the letters designed for the original exhibition to illustrate the graphic derivation of all the letters of the English alphabet.
