Editorial Reviews

Vogue Knitting:

"For word and graphic design nerds this may be one of the coolest knitting books, ever....This intelligent volume with its strong design focus offers a new way to think about knit stitches, proportion, and the countless ways our medium can articulate a message."

Knitscene Magazine:

"This book is perfect for the literary knitters of the world, delightfully combining letters and fiber into one art form."

Publishers Weekly:

"Museum curator and graphic designer Schloemer's appealingly photographed and artfully laid-out guide charts a rigorous course for knitters interested in converting various texts and typefaces into knitted items."

Zuzana Licko, Emigre Fonts:

"Now that pixels are becoming invisibly small on our computer screens, it's time to bring bitmaps full circle, back to their function as building blocks of material that you can keep, and, in this case, that can keep you warm. Typographic Knitting covers it all, in glorious detail."

Craft Gossip:

"It's quite an inspirational book that is sure to get you thinking about different ways to leave your mark with text on your knitting projects."
