On the Road to Variable: The Flexible Future of Typography
122 projects featuring inspiring typographic solutions from around the world
In the fall of 2016, Adobe, Google, Apple, and Microsoft announced a new update to the Open-Type specification that allowed fonts to be variable. Designers would have the freedom and flexibility to use a wide variety of styles, ranging from one extreme to another, and including everything in between.
Although the technology has yet to be fully implemented, variable typography is already becoming an unstoppable force in contemporary graphic design.
On the Road to Variable explores an eclectic and exciting collection of work that experiments with the modification of existing typefaces as well as the creation of new ones for a fascinating glimpse into the future of type.
The book exists with two different covers, blue or orange.
