Happy typographic families 

(including 2 large families, 1 superfamily and 1 joker)


Turning a game of cards, learn or review your knowledge on typography: families of characters. Beyond these families, discover the characters with specimens that contain and reveal a few episodes of typographic history. Based on the “official” Vox-ATypI classification developed by Maximilien Vox (here revised and expanded), this set of families explain — seriously — each character family: its origins, its specificities, historical context, etc. It also paints a picture of type design over the centuries. It is an overview of contemporary typographic design with recent creations of international foundries such as: 205TF, BP Foundry, Commercial type Elsner & Flake, Emigre, FontBureau, FontFont, Hoefler & Frere-Jones, Lineto, Linotype, Optimo, Ourtype, PhilsFont, Typofonderie, Underware… For must-have! To offer absolutely!
