BIG Black and Beautiful

Cooper Black book

In 1922, the Cooper Black typeface entered the world and turned a word into a gesture just by its looks: the undeniable poker face of all typefaces.
Cooper Black is a survivor; it outlived World War II, the first step on the moon, the Cold War, hurricanes, Chinese massage salons, cheap sleazy magazines and storefronts.
This book is a celebration of this famous typeface. It tells its history, but first and foremost it shows how Cooper Black has been used the world over by designers of all sorts.
A very funny gift book for Cooper Black lovers and graphic designers in general.


  • Visual eye candy for type lovers.
  • A well deserved homage to Cooper Black
  • The perfect gift book for graphic designers
