Press Release Yearbook of Type II
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 catalog and reference work for all those who are interested in contemporary fonts and type design.

-New edition with all new typefaces
-Detailed presentation of all selected fonts
