Paper sends a message your hands can read even with your eyes shut...so starts the "Fresh Takes on Classic Type" promotion printed on Neenah's CLASSIC® Papers. This big, bold, and playful new book was designed by Willoughby Design. Luxuriously oversized at 9.5" x 12", the book is french-folded and contains six highly tactile, visually fresh, and delightfully interactive spreads that showcase six stories designed around a specific typeface and its creator.

“Nothing makes a designer happier than type,” says Ann Willoughby, “And with the technologies we have today, digital and analog worlds are united in an unlimited possibility of expression. It’s never been a better time to be a designer.”
From newcomers to renowned typographical masters, the book features typefaces by Jessica Hische, Luke Lisi, Erik Spiekermann, Matthew Carter, and Nicole and Petra Kapitza. Each typeface is the star of its own story, told through design, a variety of printing techniques and the textures and colors of CLASSIC CREST®, CLASSIC® Linen, CLASSIC® Laid, and CLASSIC COLUMNS® Papers.
