"Over a decade ago, Julian Rothenstein published A2Z, a cornucopia of unconventional alphabets, emblems, letters, and signs to inspire practical and creative use. A2Z+ is a continuation that contains a newly discovered wealth of rare graphics and ephemera including the statistical charts of black activist W.E.B. Du Bois. Thoughtfully produced and detailed, this version is an indispensable source of ideas and inspiration for adaptive contemporary typographic reinterpretation."

"There's a beautifully scattergun approach to A2Z+ Alphabets and Signs, a gorgeous compendium of loosely curated typographic ephemera and graphics..What's so charming about the book is its subtle reconfiguring of the idea of what an alphabet can be. Lettering and symbolism is so much more than conventual typographic characters, and it proves the beauty in communicating through creative solutions and symbols."
