Simultaneously dispelling the notion that typography is just for design geeks while also catering for font fanatics, TypeNotes is a new print magazine love letter to letterforms.
It’s been two years since the last issue but good things come to those who wait. And so, here is the third issue of Fontsmith’s journal dedicated to typography and graphic design.
Like the previous issues it’s jam-packed with cracking content, including advice on dealing with creative block; a collection of 1960s and 70s beer mats; typography in art; a guide to type styles; a big typographic night out; a look behind the scenes at St Bride Library, the British Film Institute archives and the fascinating bespoke print shop Perrott Press, and much, much more…
After a two-year hiatus, the design of TypeNotes has evolved to feel smarter and more grown up, thanks to some striking new typefaces from the Fontsmith team—from the bold Bodoni-inspired FS Ostro to the industrial beauty of FS Industrie. Not everything has changed though, we’ve kept the underlying structure the same, as well as the playful flexibility that makes TypeNotes what it is.
