Type design book - due before November 15th, 2020
Year Book of Type 2021
YEARBOOK OF TYPE Call for Entries Yearbook of Type 2021/22After the successes of its first four editions the Call for Entries for the Yearbook of Type 2021/22 starts again. The book will be published in spring 2021 and will follow the same design concept as the fourth edition. It presents a selection of contemporary typefaces from larger typeface publishers as well as smaller, independent typographers and foundries in the form of a clear, comprehensive compendium.
Each individual typeface in the Yearbook of Type is presented on one spread. The left side shows a visual with a detailed view of the type and an initial visual impression. We will take a close look at each typeface and its specifics and then develop a design that shows its character, language support, styles, weights and widths, special glyphs, OpenType features, and possible application areas. On the right side more detailed background information about the designer and the foundry is provided as well as a list of the typeface’s different features.
The catalog is followed by an index of all the included typefaces arranged by category. Short texts provide information on individual type foundries and an essay section offers sketches, background knowledge, technical information, instructions and descriptions from the world of typography. Additionally, it offers an overview and a description of the technical supports of each typeface and, as a new component, includes a key with information about OpenType features.
The Yearbook’s microsite shows the presented typefaces on screen. It simplifies the connection between print and web and helps the user to select, try, or buy a typeface.
The informative presentation of the typefaces serves graphic designers and advertising agencies as a source of inspiration and helps select the right typeface. As a catalog and reference work it is also of interest to all those who are interested in the contemporary world of typography and the latest in typeface design.
We are looking forward to another great issue with you!
