Helvetica is not only the preferred typeface of leading professionals, it is also an all-time favourite among the multitude of codes, signals and signs that flavour urban life. This book sings the praises of the honest worker and solo entertainer of typefaces, Helvetica, and of its forgotten creator and all those who have contributed to its unparalleled international march of triumph over the past forty years. Filled with pages of color images of Helvetica in use, from album covers and road signs to advertisements and product packaging, the designs gathered together in honor of Helvetica have been created by superb designers and anonymous amateurs from all over the world. The result is an exciting collection of this icon of modern design.

From the Publisher:
Helvetica is a sans-serif typeface. It is simple and clean, and commonly seen in advertising, signage, and literature. The R has a curved leg, and the i and j have square dots. The Q has a straight angled tail, and the counterforms inside the O, Q, and C are oval. It is an all-purpose type design that can deliver practically any message clearly and efficiently. It is one of the most popular typefaces of all time. Helvetica: Homage to a Typeface presents 400 examples of Helvetica in action, selected from two diametrically opposed worlds. Superb applications by renowned designers are juxtaposed with an anonymous collection of ugly, ingenious, charming, and hair-raising samples of its use.
