Publisher Description: "Critical essays link theories about feminism, racism, inclusion, and binary thinking to design principles and practices. Type specimens, biographies, and interviews showcase the work and ideas of people marginalized by sexism, racism, and/or ableism. Extra Bold is the design manual for everyone. Part textbook and part comic book, zine, manifesto, and survival guide, Extra Bold is filled with stories and ideas that don't show up in other career books or design overviews. Written collaboratively by a diverse team of authors, the book begins with essays connecting design to feminism, anti-racism, disability, and nonbinary thinking. Capsule histories open the design canon to overlooked people and practices. Interviews, typefaces, and projects created by dozens of contributors deliver multiple points of view, informed by a variety of abilities, gender identities, and racial and ethnic backgrounds. Useful and informative, Extra Bold explores power structures and how to navigate them. Interviews showcase people at different stages of their careers, and biographical sketches uncover the lives and work of creative producers marginalized by sexism, racism, and ableism. Illustrations by Jennifer Tobias bring warmth and narrative depth to each section."
