Britsoft: An Oral History
I conceived and acted as commissioning editor on this collective story of the early British games industry. Designed by London studio Julia, the book comprises interviews with 35 people who shaped the modern videogame. The title’s unique layout allows the reader to move either chronologically through the text, or with a single voice in isolation.
The book features a bespoke typeface, designed by Hugo Timm at Julia, which combines the monospace characteristics of early computer fonts with the quirks of hand drawn lettering. The typeface brings a unique tone of voice to proceedings, and serves as an appropriate partner to a story of everyday hobbyists spearheading a technological revolution.
