Face Them Head On is a book showcasing the damaged wood type found in the Parsons School of Design printmaking lab. The book is meant to show that damaged wood type can still be used in context to make it have more meaning. It also shows the beauty of the damages in the type whether it is completely broken in half, contains scratches or if its squished. Gothic is a wood type that is used mainly for newspaper headlines and posters. Wood type itself was developed early in the 19th century because it was cheap, light and available but it is not long lasting. Since it is not long lasting, damaged type tends to be put to the side and not used since the text will then become unclear.
