Details: Metalheart is a book about the passion of digital design and the remarkable power of the pixel. It started as a project in 1998 when Swedish designers Andreas Lindholm and Anders F. Rönnblom sent the emBOXX/Brainreactor Prototype CD containing fonts and 3D typefaces to a selection of designers for digital experimentation. They asked the designers to use and abuse their alphabets and send them back artworks for publication in this book. Response was slow at first but after Andreas’ spectacular graphics were published in EFX Art & Design magazine they started to receive some fantastically innovative files. Metalheart is an explosive collection of shapes, shadows and colors that could not have been created without the aid of digital software.
