I'm writing a paper about the history and future of 3D typography -- does anyone know of any good references (preferably online) related in some respect to this subject? Thx!

3D as is animation/movies pre-digital?
3D as rendered CAD objects?
3D as in sculpted architectural forms?
3D as in hand painted signs of letters in perspective?

I ♥ typeworkshop.com run by Underware has done some great 3d experimental stuff like this.

I know that one graphic designer and sculptur Takenobu Igarashi had made a lot of works of 3 D type, It's a Good Stuff

Igarashi is a classic.

A really cool book for you to get is "Dimensional
Typography: Words in Space" by J Abbott Miller.

There's a site for that? Cool.

This is in the Miller book btw.

Thanks, I have the Miller book. I couldn't find much on Igarashi as far as 3D stuff - does anyone have any links or specific titles?
