    Italian Plate No1 in use for the book The Motorcycle: Design, Art, Desire, designed by Order Design for Phaidon.

    An essential and compelling exploration of the design, history, and culture of the motorcycle — an icon of the machine age. The book includes over 400 motorcycles, photographs, and ephemera spread over six chapters. Order comments:

    For the book’s typographic language, we pulled references from motorcycle license plates, the one consistent component across any style and period of bike. Italian Plate No1 was chosen for its relationship to license plates and visual modularity.
