“Glorious Types” is a symbiosis of illustration and type design. On eleven double-​​page spreads Daniel Dolz illustrates a complete team of legendary football players from various nations and from different decades. The book shows a varied mixture of most diverse characters (goalkeeper, strikers and defenders) which also is reflected in the choice of fonts. For each player Daniel Dolz designed a special font which coheres with the illustration.

 

In the side flaps of each illustration spread you can find a list with facts and short anecdotes of every player and the complete alphabet A-​​Z.
