(the following text is taken from the book's jacket)

For centuries, designers have chosen type styles to convey unique expressions and to make their work stand out. Today's computers provide a selection of fonts that serve reasonably well for workaday letters and publications but they have become utterly boring from overuse. If you want your project to attract the reader's attention you need an original font.

Independent type designers have devoted their talents to producing fresh new fonts that can give your text a major boost. Indie Fonts 2 provides a showcase collection of over 1600 diverse fonts from 19 of today's hottest digital type foundries and features the best work of these designers. Indie Fonts 2 will help you find some of the highest quality fonts available today.

In the early 20th century, type reference books provided users with samples from the major monolithic type companies. This book is styled after those classic tools, but features independent firms whose fonts, like their names, are unique. You will discover such foundries as No Bodoni, Underware, and YouWorkForThem, alongside Parkinson, Holland Fonts and Neufville Digital. The type styles range from the best of Frantisek Storm's classic designs to the latest bitmaps of Atomic Media. Designers searching for unique typefaces will find what they are looking for, whether historic revivals or futuristic techno faces.

This book's fully cross-referenced index of type designs and designers, accompanied by one-line illustrations of the fonts for quick reference, expedites the search. Direct access listings to the foundries, websites and phone numbers allows the user to put any remaining questions directly to the type designers! (Don't be shy-they're expecting your call). Also included is a quick reference chart so you can track down those unusual characters required in many languages.

Indie Fonts 2 comes with a companion CD ROM-worth far more than the retail cost of the book-featuring 38 representative fonts from the book's independent foundries. Searching the web and looking at pixilated web images is not always a satisfactory way to find the best type for your needs. Using this book and CD ROM is a far better method to find unique fonts-from the extremely useful to the surprisingly experimental. Indie Fonts 2 is a must-have for designers, artists, aesthetes, publishers, advertisers, and hobbyists-in fact, for anyone with something to say.
