About This Book

There are 26 letters in the Latin alphabet. More than merely letters, they are also characters, each possessing unique traits and qualities. And character is what makes a typeface great. Twenty-six characters details how Nokia's new typeface, Nokia Pure, was designed and developed by typography icon Bruno Maag and how it was crafted into a contemporary font. Twenty-six characters is also design inspiration, a specimen sheet, a rough guide to typography, and the tale of a global business undergoing radical change. All in all, it's a visual treat for type lovers and experts—and the first step in establishing a visual language.
