The Goodtype community is comprised of more than 200,000 designers, artists, and lettering geeks from around the world. Goodtype The Book Volume 1 will serve as the ultimate lettering reference packed with inspiration, and serve as a guide for those seeking to hire letterers and designers. It encompasses a multitude of styles from hand lettering, to computer-generated 3D-type, to traditional calligraphy.

Those who donate and secure their copy of Goodtype The Book Volume 1, will also be supporting the Goodtype Stay Sharp Scholarship. One dollar from every book sold will go toward the scholarship, which will aid present and future designers and help them pursue their love of lettering and design. According to Goodtype founder, Brooke Bucherie, “We want to support the efforts of designers and help lead the way for those seeking a profession in the art and design world.”
