today I reached the first edition of the yearbook of type. While holding it in my hands I must say, wow, the haptic and design is very creative and interesting.

The idea of slanted for the yearbook was to offer a high quality selection of digital typeface concentrated in a big compendium. But why digital typefaces? Because in the past years the amount of good typographers and designers is grown and of course also the number of new fonts. Everyone wants to design his own typeface. While some of them are very creepy and not useful, the others are perfectly shaped and originally designed. The last mentioned are well researched and represented in this book.

Also blogs and internet portals are providing regular information about new fonts and foundries, but there has still been no independent high quality book like this since now.

Each individual typeface family is presented on a double-page spread. On the left side appears a visual created by the respective type designer or label with a detailled view of the font and an initial optical impression. On the right side you can find more detailled informations of typefaces features.

I also highly recommend this book to you, not because it’s made by slanted, not because you can get a bunch full of inspiration of it, but as a must have for all young type designers and type fanatics as me.

Thanks to the Publisher Niggli for this compendium and Magma Brand Design for the concept and realization.
