“New Perspectives in Typography” is a beautifully diverse and refreshingly current collection of the best typography-focused design from international design firms, foundries, publications and everything in between. The title pretty much captures the contents of the book compiled by A2/SW/HK’s Scott Williams and Henrik Kubel.
At the age of 8, I became a HUGE Abba fan. I saw them live in concert, and faithfully listened to every song on every album in chronological order, focussing on different details each time. Sometimes the vocals only, sometimes certain instruments. Each song detail was burned in my brain. It wasn’t until 1994 when I experienced another side of them with their first box set. It was the rare track called “Abba Undeleted,” a 23-minute medley of unreleased, incomplete and rough versions interspersed with studio chatter.
