MY TYPEFACE BOOK

Often times, when selecting a typeface, you just have to see it in print. So to help me choose the best typeface for printed projects easier and faster, I created this reference book of my personal library of typefaces. Only typefaces suitable for body copy with multiple weights and italics were selected.

Specimens do exist for nearly every typeface ever created, but I needed a standard type specimen layout so I could compare typefaces apples to apples, which (to my knowlege) doesn’t exit. I also needed specimen sheets with all open type features listed, which not all typeface specimens have. I also challenged myself with seeking out commercially free equivalents of popular and useful paid typefaces, so when creating the book, I placed the paid version on the left facing page and the free version on the right.

I consider it complete enough to use, but I’m always updating and refining it. The one in real life is actually a 3-ring binder with sheet protectors to make revisions easy.

Did I tell you that I’m into type?
