Every day I draw at least one letter | HVD Fonts Type Book

Overview

‘On the streets you look at girls – I look at type!’ Perhaps this is one of the secrets of success for the internationally renowned type designer Hannes von Döhren. His bestsellers, such as Brandon, can only arise from observation, enthusiasm and perseverance. This book presents Von Döhren’s work from the past six years. It also offers the chance to explore HVD Fonts first-hand: every book includes a download license for five fonts valued at $99!

This book includes detailed presentations of all HVD typefaces since 2008, infos about Hannes von Döhren and his career as a type designer, an interview with Livius Dietzel, some tips for young type designers, an essay about type founding today by Jan Middendorp and a lot of in use examples.

Erik Spiekermann about Hannes ‘Hannes is different. He used type before he started designing his own… He draws the letters the way he thinks they should look. And the love and care invested shine through. Hannes’ typefaces are joy to behold and even more of a joy to use.’
