    An immersive and thorough exploration of typography’s role in painting the futuristic landscape needed for science fiction film. Addey’s attention to detail is magnificent. The book is filled with interesting facts, design education, and just the right amount of humor. This is a must-read for nerds everywhere.

    While at first appearing to only appeal to a niche inside a niche, the clever style and thoughtful analysis in this book will appeal to fans of classic film and science fiction in general. If you happen to be a design nerd, so much the better!
