About Typodarium 2016

Typodarium 2016 is the daily typography dose. A tear-off calendar, just like the one our grandma used to hang in the kitchen. But this calendar unveils a new font everyday. We can therefore have, a whole year long, the chance to broaden our knowledge, to discover the font’s history and developement, to possess a piece of jewellery that is new everyday. On the front, the font will be prominently displayed, and on the back it will be described in details. How it originated, from what or who came the inspiration and where we can obtain the font. We really want a story about your typeface!


Like in the last years, Typodarium 2016 is published by Verlag Hermann Schmidt Mainz (10,000 copies, coming along in design- and museum shops and selected bookstores around the world).

Format: 8,5 x 12 cm, 365 fonts, 370 pages
