Letter hunting, type spotting, font finding--whatever you want to call it--designers, typographers, and handletterers have long taken to the streets for inspiration in the bountiful and amazing examples of type that surround us. Whether hunting for forgotten vintage signage, a perfect piece of street art, or colorful handpainted ephemera, this lightly guided notebook from the popular design collective Friends of Type (authors of the Keep Fresh, Stay Rad Postcard Box) provides ample space to record, sketch, and riff off all the letters in the world that are fit to hunt.

Editorial Reviews

New City:

"Letterheads now have a more personal, refreshingly analog way to catalog their finds."

Boing Boing:

"Created by the full-contact typographic love site, Friends of Type, this 160-page hard-bound diary will likely woo type freaks."
