This beautiful specimen just arrived today. A Sign Systems Manual by Theo Crosby, Alan Fletcher and Colin Forbes illustrates and describes a simple basic system for designing, contracting and displaying signs. It also dives into the history of alphabets and the development of type. It’s an excellent inspirational resource jam packed with pages and pages of gorgeous type examples.
This is the rarest and most expensive book I own. I found it for less than $100, that’s a great price considering that I’ve seen it for $300.

Wow, that looks better than pornography. Trouble is we’re all gonna be looking for used copies on Amazon now. So much for supply and demand.
