Yearbook of Type Vol 2

Author(s): Slanted Publishers


The constantly progressing digitalization of the media has radically altered the development and marketing of new typefaces. Desktop publishing and programs for the design of own fonts allow a previously unimaginable wealth of new typefaces. To provide an overview of this welcome diversity, the Yearbook of Type presents a selection of new releases from around the world from large publishing houses to small, independent typographers and foundries. This independent compendium presents individual fonts or font families on a double page each, providing both visual impressions as well as background and detailed information about the finishing. A section with essays additionally provides background information, technical aspects, as well as instructions or descriptions from the sector. The publication serves designers and agencies as a source of inspiration and aids in the selection of fonts, at the same time also constituting a catalogue and reference work for all those who are interested in contemporary fonts and type design.
