The Fine Specimens Kickstarter is live!

Hello and welcome to a very short, somewhat sweet, and most debatably special edition of the newsletter, in which I’d like to tell you that — just in case you skipped the subject line — the 8 Faces presents: Fine Specimens Kickstarter campaign is live!

TL; DR: Fine Specimens is going to be another hardcover coffee table book and yes, it is of course about type.

Fine Specimens will be filled with hundreds of beautiful type specimens from contemporary indie foundries all over the world. This book is all about celebrating the incredible type design — and, specifically, the artwork created to promote it — from foundries operating right now. As such, every typeface in the book was created within the last year, and the book itself will serve as a source of inspiration for any designers, directors, and agencies looking for the very latest fonts.

Of course, that’s only going to happen if the project is actually funded. So if that sounds like the kind of thing you’d like to have in your hands, it would be wonderful if you decide to back the project on Kickstarter!

Thanks for reading and please do email me if you’d like to geek out about any of the above — I always respond.
