character#02 is the second specimag by Character Type—a blend of type magazine and a typeface specimen. Their rich archive of collected typeface specimens and type magazines has inspired them to marry the two into one creative space and share some recent type-related thoughts and insights, while introducing Character Type’s newest typeface super family NewsSerif.
character#02 features a photographic essay by Bettina Theuerkauf about the self-destructive tendencies of modern society. We also look at the history of type families and also work our way through the concept of variable fonts.
