EMIGRE FONTS: TYPE SPECIMENS, 1986-2016. Ed. by Rudy VanderLans. Gingko Press Inc., Berkeley, 2016. 752 pp. with 506 ills. (271 col.). 22 x 14 cm. LC 2016-932167 ISBN 9781584236207 In English.
Publisher's description: In 1985, Berkeley-based graphic design company Emigre, the publisher of the legendary design magazine of the same name, launched one of the first independent digital type foundries to explore the new design possibilities offered by the MacIntosh computer. To announce each of their new typeface releases, Emigre published small booklets displaying the virtues of the fonts and revealing the processes used to design them. By creating specific contexts, many of these so called "type specimens" went beyond being simple sales tools. In fact the Emigre booklets were meant to be enjoyed as much for the typefaces as for their esoteric content.
