Lost Letterforms is a large format, coffee table publication based around the subject matter of typeface revivial.
The publication uses three revivalist typefaces:
Haas Unica, a recent revival by Monotype;
Doves Type, a typeface revived from lead type found in the Thames;
Times Modern Swash – Revived by Joe Leadbeater for the publication.
The content is based around sourced pre-digital publications sourced and honoured within the publication; with selected letterforms digitalised. The letterforms are used as a base for a typeface, with characteristics and precise measurements taken. These details can be used to create the rest of a consistant typeface in the future.
