Size-specific adjustments to type designs

Tim Ahrens and Shoko Mugikura from Just Another Foundry have just updated and republished their book about optical sizes in type design Size-specific adjustments to type designs, An investigation of the principles guiding the design of optical sizes.

The book looks into type history and perception psychology, and analyzes designs by old masters and numerous contemporary designers. We are really proud to see our Tramuntana among classic typefaces and legendary foundries in this beautifully designed book. If all of that is not enough to make you go and buy the book right away, the foreword has been written by Christian Schwartz.

You can take a look at some pictures of the book in our Gallery.
