  • Arcade Game Typography: The Art of Pixel Type

    08
    Arcade Game Typography presents readers with a fascinating new world of typography – the pixel typeface. Video game designers of the 70s, 80s and 90s faced colour and resolution limitations that stimulated incredible creativity: with letters having to exist in an 8×8 square grid, artists found ways to create expressive and elegant character sets within a tiny canvas.

    Featuring pixel typefaces carefully selected from the first decades of arcade video games, Arcade Game Typography presents a previously undocumented ‘outsider typography’ movement, accompanied by insightful commentary from author Toshi Omagari, a Monotype typeface designer himself, and screenshots of the type in use. Exhaustively researched, this book gathers an eclectic typography from hit games such as Super Sprint, Pac-Man, After Burner, Marble Madness, Shinobi, as well as countless lesserknown gems. The book presents its typefaces on a dynamic and decorative grid, taking reference from high-end type specimens while adding a suitably playful twist. Unlike print typefaces, pixel type often has bold colour ‘baked in’ to the characters, so Arcade Game Typography looks unlike any other typography book, fizzing with life and colour.

  • Beauty of Bond: Celebrating 60 years of the 007 women

    03

    The James Bond film series is well-known for its ground breaking film making. Since 1962, actors from Sean Connery to Daniel Craig all had the distinct pleasure to portray Ian Fleming’s secret agent along with a variety of beautiful women. Some were innocent, some were naïve. Some were strong and determined; while some were the definition of evil.

    The beautiful women surrounding James Bond are as much as a trademark of the films as the gadgets, cars and stunning locations. They all help make the films the spectacular stories we love so dearly, and this book looks at these women from a different and creative perspective.

    Born in 1959 in Philadelphia, Jeff Marshall’s creative philosophy is one of craftsmanship, attention to detail and a constant effort to develop fresh originality in each and every artistic realisation. After having graduated the Art Institute of Philadelphia, Marshall started working as a self-employed creative developer and project director.

    His love for film, and specifically the world of 007, brought him to the attention of EON Productions, producers of the Bond films, for which he created a line of limited edition James Bond lithographs in the 1990s. Jeff Marshall is well-known and appreciated within the 007 fan world, as he regularly supplies beautiful artwork for magazine and book covers.

    Beauty of Bond is the first publication to be completely dedicated to the artist and his work.

  • David Hockney. My Window

    06

    When David Hockney discovered the iPhone as an artistic medium, it opened up entirely new possibilities for his art. He made his first digital drawings in spring 2009, describing the morning landscape in broad lines and dazzling colors directly on a display that offered subtle hues as unmixed expressions of pure light. Then in 2010, Hockney started working with an iPad, and the larger screen expanded his artistic repertoire and enabled an even more complex interplay of color, light, and line.

    Each image in this book captures a fleeting moment seen through a window in Hockney’s Yorkshire home: from vibrant sunrise and lilac morning sky to peaceful night-time impressions or the sudden arrival of spring. Fascinating details reveal drops on window panes, distant lights in the night, reflections on vases or an abundance of varied window-sill vegetation. In 120 drawings made between 2009 and 2012, selected and arranged by the artist himself, we experience the passage of time through the eyes of David Hockney.

    This artist’s book, which first appeared in an exclusive signed edition, now returns as an unlimited run, whose still generous XL format presents Hockney’s impressions in brilliant resolution. So now is the perfect occasion to heed the advice of the Times critic regarding this book: “If you would like to be given a bouquet by David Hockney, here is your chance.”
