Typefaces come in thousands of shapes, sizes and styles. Like verbal language, with all its nuances, dialects, accents and tics, typography is not simply a container of meanings but a translator too. Different faces say distinct things to many people. Type projects authority and frivolity. Type is communication on so many different levels of perception and reception.

Type Deck is a sampler of typographic personality and a primer of expressive visual communication. The letterforms are part of a shared language that have added to the diversity of graphic design. The Deck identifies characteristics and places particular forms in historical periods and aesthetic contexts.
