Yearbook of Type — II
»The constantly progressing digitalization of the media has radically altered the development and marketing of new typefaces. Desktop publishing and programs for the design of own fonts allow a previously unimaginable wealth of new typefaces. To provide an overview of this welcome diversity, the Yearbook of Type presents a selection of new releases from around the world – from large publishing houses to small, independent typographers and foundries.« (Quotation: Press-release)

Gedau Gothic Revisited
We had some thoughts on our fontfamily Gedau Gothic and decided to play a little with different glyph-styles and corresponding Open-Type-Format-Sets in this typeface.

The result is a four-in-one font-family, which allows you to choose between several flavors: The former (still standard) glyph-set; a very pure style-set with a »closed-a« and a »one-story-g«; a bit more legible style-set with variants of the lowercase glyphs »a«, »t« and »u«; and a funky-monospace-lookalike Format-Set.

For more information on the variable styles we recommend to visit the chapter Styles and Features in the Gedau Gothic section.

Caput Superfamily
The Caput Fontfamily — designed in 2008 — is a legible, dynamic contemporary Sans Serif with a moderate but visible »square character«.

During 2012 and 2013 we designed a new Serif Fontfamily, based on the formal appearance and architecture of the Caput Sans Styles. So now we have a brandnew Superfamily on the Farm called Caput (SF) which is a workhorse for all common design issues, even for the usage in long textpassages.

Caput (SF) comes up with the »old« Sans and the »new« Serif Family, each including eight »normal« and eight standalone Small Caps styles and with alternate glyphs (titling and letterform alternatives) and useful Opentype features (for more information take a look at »Type Talks« in the caput section).
There are many options for purchasing Caput (SF). Owners of the Fontfarm Package Caput Complete and owners of one of the the collections: Legible or The whole story can upgrade their Package/Collection to the Caput (SF) Complete Package with a large discount.

Yearbook of Type I
The »Yearbook of Type« (Niggli Verlag, Karlsruhe; edited by slanted) is an independent collection of fresh typefaces published during the past three years. It shows a hand-picked choice of fonts from larger to small(er) type foundries and from independent typographers.

Each typeface is presented on a double page with a »teaser« on the left and a small overview/description on the right side. More infos on the typographers and foundries are added in the last chapter of the book.

The fontfarm.de made three contributions in this fat compendium:
