Cyrus Highsmith is the recipient of the Gerrit Noordzij Prize, given to type designers and typographers for extraordinary contributions to the fields of type design and type education. This small book documents Cyrus’ work — his type design and well as his sketches and drawings, and presents essays by David Berlow, Indra Kupferschmid and Jan Middendorp on the work of Cyrus Highsmith. Designed by Erik van Blokland and Peter Verheul. ‘I have always loved to draw. When I first encountered type design, I discovered a very pure form of drawing. It’s about contour, and edges, and, most of all, shapes. Black and white shapes. For me, this is drawing distilled down to its essence.’ Cyrus Highsmith
