IT’S ONE THING TO EXTOL THE VIRTUES OF TYPOGRAPHY
It’s quite another to demonstrate them as Robert Wakeman has.
Over the years he has earned a reputation for his imagination,
tastefulness and integrity as a poster designer and typographic
consultant. His cardinal rule is to treat type as art. He never distorts,
edits, manipulates or violates a letterform. Instead, he selects type
as others choose illustrations, photographs or paintings—to give
color, texture and form to a page, as well as to illuminate, animate,
dramatize and communicate a message.
