For over fifty years, the Type Directors Club has encouraged the worldwide graphic arts community to achieve excellence in typography through its annual international competitions. Typography 34 is the only annual devoted exclusively to typography and presents the finest work produced during 2012. The winning designs for the 59th annual Type Directors Club competition (TDC59) were selected from approximately 2,300 international submissions.
This beautiful 360-page book, designed by Chip Kidd, features full-color images of innovative type design in a wide range of categories including books, magazines, corporate identities, logos, stationery, annual reports, video and web graphics, and posters. Typography 34 also includes an historic black-and-white reproduction of the catalogue of winners from TDC's tenth annual awards exhibition in 1964.
