Type Idea Index might appear to be a fat little vinyl-bound book, but really, it's a fat little vinyl-bound tool-an idea-generating, horizon-expanding, knowledge-broadening power tool that can be used to boost the creative output of designers, illustrators and anyone else who uses type. Type Idea Index will expand your knowledge of type and help you brainstorm new ideas every time you design with letters and words. The basic principle behind Type Idea Index is simple: ideas breed ideas. Written by Jim Krause.
