Philippe Apeloig is a graphic designer who loves letters. The new book Typorama makes this wonderfully clear in its 384 pages of designs and sketches by Apeloig, essays, and even the title. The word “typorama” suggests a wide perspective of typographic features, a panorama of Philippe Apeloig’s work.
Typorama presents Apeloig’s poster, publication, and identity designs from the early 1980s to the present. A 1983 design for the Dutch office Total Design is the earliest piece by Apeloig in Typorama, and it reflects Total Design’s modernist design legacy.
