There are two types of people in this wicked world: People who pay attention to fonts and typefaces and people who don’t. But even we font-ignoramuses might be interested in the upcoming new book by Dave Addey entitled Typeset in the Future: Typography and Design in Science Fiction Movies. More precisely, seven science fiction movies:
“In Typeset in the Future, blogger and designer Dave Addey invites sci-fi movie fans on a journey through seven genre-defining classics, discovering how they create compelling visions of the future through typography and design. The book delves deep into 2001: A Space Odyssey, Star Trek: The Motion Picture, Alien, Blade Runner, Total Recall, WALL·E, and Moon, studying the design tricks and inspirations that make each film transcend mere celluloid and become a believable reality.”
Typeset in the Future: Typography and Design in Science Fiction Movies approaches a few canonical scifi classics in a new way, and you can pre-order a copy from Amazon right here, priced at $40, while the book is set to drop on October 30th.
