I Love Type 08: Times
Originally commissioned by the British newspaper The Times in 1931 in response to a critique of the previous typeface they used, the Times type family - including Times Roman, Times New Roman, and a number of other variants - has become one of the most commonly used throughout the world. Distributed by Microsoft with every copy of Windows since version 3.1 and used as the default typeface for many applications including Microsoft Word, Times has become a widely accepted typeface for high school and college papers. It is also widely used in publishing, including for almost all mass market paperbacks produced in the United States, and it became the official typeface of all U.S. government diplomatic documents in 2004. This new volume in the "I Love Type" series is expertly curated to prove that this highly functional type family can be highly aesthetic and cutting edge, when utilized by internationally respected designers for the incredibly creative designs featured in these pages.
