Neue Schriften. New Typefaces.

Positions and Perspectives

While in the 1970s just a few hundred new typefaces were published, today graphic designers can choose from tens of thousands of fonts – with an upward tendency. This publication, however, shows that current type design is not subject to randomness or a fashionable hype. Key protagonists offer insights into their thinking and working, take a position on current developments under the new technical, esthetic and socio-political conditions.

From the rich international cosmos of typefaces the book presents experimental type designs. These can be based on a spontaneous idea or the concept of an individually chosen design project or these are typefaces for books with large type families, which, often over a number of years, were developed systematically with passion, endurance and an unswerving attention to characteristic detail.
