More About This Book

House Industries is famous for their impeccable tongue-in-cheek takes on
American popular culture, on comic influences such as Ed "Big Daddy" Roth
and on modern design classics from Neutra to Charles Eames. Based in
Delaware, its members have been producing premier league typefaces and
designs for a huge and devoted fan base since 1993.

Because their font and design work deftly meld cultural, musical and
graphical elements, one becomes part of a concept and a way of life by
buying a House product. Their prize-winning font families, for example, are
lovingly packaged to match the overall font theme in wallets, bowling bags,
UFOs, etc. Their unique type products can be seen internationally on
anything from your favourite brand of cereal to highly circulated magazines
and television shows. The stylish House catalogue, which is published three
to four times a year, now reaches an audience of over 80,000.

This spot-varnished, linen-bound hardcover volume will feature 240 pages of
highlights from House Industries’ current work, including a distilled
collection of photographs, sketches, original illustrations and personal
anecdotes. Employing 6-colour-printing on a variety of paper types, this
publication will also include five original fonts created exclusively for
the book that will not be available anywhere else. The font CD will also
contain bonus audio tracks of stupid phone messages, appreciations and
various other House hijinks, which may have occurred over the past few
years. Because each House font is normally priced between $100 and $250,
their inclusion is an added delight and makes the book an irresistible
bargain for all aficionados.
