Letters from M/M (Paris) is a comprehensive study of the typefaces produced by Michaël Amzalag and Mathias Augustyniak since they founded their influential art and design practice, M/M (Paris). For the first time, ninety of the designers’ typefaces are catalogued chronologically in three carefully conceived volumes, comprising the history of their development; exclusive type specimens; and detailed illustrations of projects in which they appear.
Written and designed by typography expert Paul McNeil and with a foreword by Björk – whose collaboration with M/M spans over two decades – this encyclopaedic publication traces the distinctive and integral nature of type, lettering and signs in the work of M/M, from one-off artistic commissions to fashion branding and their long-lasting partnerships with musicians and theatres.
This deluxe collector’s edition, specially conceived by M/M, is available exclusively on Volume. With a nod to type specimen books, each book is a jacketed paperback, set together in a slipcase for protection and aesthetic pleasure. Numbered and signed by the designers, it is the perfect companion to the two-volume monograph M to M of M/M (Paris).
