Editorial ReviewsZuzana 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."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."
