Five Classic Typefaces
The above is a compilation of some of the best,
most imaginative, graphic work produced by the students of Typography
1: Introduction to Typography taught by James Craig at The
Cooper Union in New York City.
The projects were taken from his book Designing
with Type and from additional projects developed especially
for Typography 1. They represent one semester’s
work for second-year students and were assigned in the order
shown with the exception of the last three projects, which were
given at random.
A special thanks goes to each and every Typography
1 student, as well as to past and present teaching associates:
William Bevington, Brian Hoffer, Gene Smith, Julie Yee, and Irene
