Steve Heller and My New Book, Lettering Large

I just received an advanced copy of my latest book with Steve Heller, Lettering Large: Art and Design of Monumental Typography, published by Monacelli Press. The book will be released at the end of October.

It is one of the first books to chronicle letters as presences in the urban landscape. There are examples culled from sites across the US and throughout the world. The book contains over 700 images of monumental typography projects.

This book was dedicated to Milton Glaser and Mihajlo Arsovski.

  1. Looks awesome. I'm loving the diversified cultures, and the Arabic samples look brilliant.

  2. Predivna i pametna knjiga na temu tipografije u prostoru, što se od Mirka Ilića moglo i očekivati. Posebno sam ponosna što je i ''Belupova'' fontana u Koprivnici uvrštena u ovo divno izdanje. Da li u ''Belupu'' znaju za to? Sigurno bi i oni bili ponosni i nabavili knjigu za svoj gradski muzej. Iskrene čestitke Mirku Iliću i Steveu Helleru. Srdačni pozdravi iz Koprivnice.

    Beautiful and smart books on typography, which is expected of Mirko Ilić . I am especially proud that Belupo's Koprivnica fountain is included in this wonderful edition. Does Belupo's marketing know about it? Surely they could be proud and maybe acquired the book for Koprivnica Museum. Sincerly congratulations to Mirko Ilić and Sreveu Heller. Best regards from Koprivnica.
