Along with including all the winning entries
from the TDC 54
exhibition, the book also has a section for type designs from the TDC2 2008
competition. One of the highlights of the book is the back section which is includes a reproduction of the original catalog pages from the 5th Type Directors Competition back in 1959.
The TDC 55
and TDC2 2008
2009 call for entries
is still open, and the winners of these competitions will earn a spot in next year's Typography 30 annual. Friday, December 19th, 2008 is the deadline for submissions.
The book is best viewed in person, but below are a few distant spread shots (note: most entries in the book include more credit information and a listing of typefaces used) :
