The development and distribution of new typefaces has changed radically due to the ever-increasing digitalization of the media. Desktop publishing and programs for designing your own fonts enable a previously unimaginable wealth of new fonts. To keep this welcome variety manageable, the Yearbook of Type II features a selection of new releases from around the world - from major type publishers to small, independent typographers and foundries.

This independent compendium presents the individual typefaces or typeface families on a double-page spread, providing visual impressions as well as background and detailed information on the typeface's features. In addition, a section with essays offers background knowledge, technical aspects, instructions or descriptions from the scene. The publication of the Yearbook of Type II serves designers or agencies as inspiration and help in the selection of typefaces, but also appeals to all those interested in contemporary typefaces and type design as a catalog and reference work.
