Today's computer technologies have allowed for the creation of new spaces for typographic communication. This collection of drawings, photographs, and typefaces explores some of the ideas that might govern the logic of three-dimensional type. It presents and analyzes letterforms based on both traditional and contemporary typefaces, freely mixing historical references and futuristic aspirations. Author J. Abbott Miller considers the ways in which letters have become three-dimensional in certain genres such as signage, and discusses how typefaces have incorporated the illusion of dimensionality on the printed page.

Dimensional Typography is the first title in our new series Kiosk Reports. Edited by J. Abbott Miller and Ellen Lupton, this inexpensive, small-format line of books will explore current ideas on graphic design, much as our Pamphlet Architecture series does for architecture.
