Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Part inspiration and part workbook, the images of hand-drawn type will inspire and excite any designer to draw and explore type. "Drawing Type" features real-world projects and sketchbooks of well-known type designers, including interviews about their processes.Playful, hand-drawn type can easily be used in a range of disciplines within design and illustration such as packaging, editorial, posters, advertising, online graphics, and signage, and the hand-made aesthetic is more prevalent now than ever. Alex Fowkes will help you to create custom lettering that clients seek for their projects. Alex walks you through the steps to drawing serifs, san serifs, scripts, etc. With ample space on the pages for designers to mimic and draw their own typefaces, this book is perfect for learning at home or in a classroom that you can refer to again and again

His work varies from hand drawn type to digital typography but always tries to retain a human element to his work. The Sony Timeline is the biggest typographical piece he has undertaken taking almost 150 square meteres, taking over 2 months just to design.
