Introducing the Typographics Book Fair

A small sampling of items that will be for sale from Letterform Archive

This year at Typographics we’ll be hosting the first Typographics Book Fair, offering publications for sale about typography, lettering, design, and related subjects. We’re very excited to have some of our favorite booksellers involved, including …

Oak Knoll Books

Oak Knoll Books is one of the most prominent sellers of “books about books” in the world. Founded in 1976, they carry about 23,000 titles on typography, lettering, graphic design, type specimens, and much more. They’ll be making the trek up to Typographics from their home in New Castle, Delaware.

Letterform Archive

Letterform Archive, based in San Francisco, is a nonprofit library and museum dedicated to the letter arts. They hold a collection of 30,000 items related to lettering, typography, calligraphy, and graphic design, spanning 2,000 years of history. They are also home to Type@Cooper West, an educational collaboration with The Cooper Union. They’ll be selling duplicate pieces of type foundry ephemera from their collection.

Display Books

Display is an occasional bookstore offering carefully selected and hard-to-find graphic design books, periodicals and ephemera. From the rational to the experimental to the playful, their inventory represents a distinct point of view about modern (c. 1940–1970) graphic design and typography from the United States and beyond.

New Metaphor Books

New Metaphor Books is an online bookshop offering a curated collection of exceptional rare, out of print, and unusual books on graphic design, typography, art, architecture, fashion, and film. The Typographics Book Fair will be a rare chance to browse their material in person.
