The Yearbook of Type presents a selection of new typefaces created all over the world—from larger publishers to smaller, independent typographers and foundries.

The comprehensive compendium presents a well curated overview that gives an impression of the typeface and its appearance on paper. The emotional and well constructed informative presentation of the typefaces will serve designers and agencies as a source of inspiration and help select the right typeface. As a catalog and reference work it will also be of interest to all those who are interested in the contemporary world of typesetting and the latest in typeface design.

“Yearbook of Type I is exactly what it sounds like: a comprehensive survey of new digital typefaces. The idea is to provide an independent print publication with an overview of new fonts and foundries, and a presentation of new developments in the field of typography. It looks like a great, informative reference for anyone interested in the latest happenings in the world of type design.”
