A Few Good Words for the Good Book
A little over a year has passed since we released the long-awaited Fourth Edition of FontBook and the praise is still pouring in. We chose a few of our favorite quotes for this week's newsletter.
Popular design blog i love typography also celebrated FontBook recently with a review and a contest to place FontBooks in the hands of famous movie characters. We were simultaneously amused and frightened. We promise this silliness was not organized or produced by FontShop … but we strongly encourage it.
Finally, a short film by i love typography editor and FontBook fan, John Boardley:
