Letters from M/M (Paris) (Hardcover)
A fabulous typographic exploration of the letter forms and typography of one of Europe’s leading design studios.
Letters from M/M (Paris) is a comprehensive study of the typefaces produced by Michaël Amzalag and Mathias Augustyniak since they founded their influential art and design practice, M/M (Paris).
For the first time, ninety of the designers’ typefaces are catalogued chronologically in a three-part volume, comprising the history of their development; exclusive type specimens; and detailed illustrations of projects in which they appear.
With a foreword by Björk—whose collaboration with M/M spans over two decades—this encyclopaedic volume traces the distinctive and integral nature of type, lettering, and signs in the work of M/M, from one-off artistic commissions to fashion branding and their long-lasting collaborations with musicians and theatres.
This complete typographic collection is the perfect companion to the two-volume monograph M to M of M/M (Paris), and will appeal not only to graphic designers, historians, and students, but to anyone interested in art and visual culture.
