Sharp Type Volume 1 is the first comprehensive type specimen published by Sharp Type, a global type design studio. Showcasing some of the foundry’s most iconic fonts—including Ogg, Sharp Grotesk, Sharp Sans, Centra and Beatrice—the volume is a homage to the great lettering manuscripts and books that inspired so much of Sharp Type’s work and offers a deep dive into 24 unique typefaces released during the first 8 years of the studio’s history.
Includes the essay “A Type of Struggle” by Lucas Sharp, co-founder and type director of Sharp Type.
