“Now that pixels are becoming invisibly small on our computer screens, it’s time to bring bitmaps full circle, back to their function as building blocks of material that you can keep, and, in this case, that can keep you warm. Typographic Knitting covers all in glorious detail.”

“The worlds of typography and knitting brought together. The book is just a start. Were it will grow when typographers and knitters are putting their knowledge about our crafts together, is hard to imagine. This book gives us a good starting point and gave me a lot of inspiration.”
