In 1990, Erik Spiekermann and Neville Brody founded the FontFont typeface library: type for independent minds, ‘by designers for designers’. Their collection of typefaces generated genuine innovation in typography, from the no-nonsense functionality of such sanserif fonts as FF Meta, FF DIN and FF Profile to contemporary refinement of neo-traditional Roman fonts, including FF Scala, FF Quadrant and FF Celeste, and from the ingenious geometry of the FF Minimum or FF Typeface Six to ‘streetwise’ variants like FF Hands, FF Trixie and FF Blur.

With essays about the different FontFonts, interviews with the designers, specially made letter proofs and completed graphic work collected by Jan Middendorp and FontFont cofounder Erik Spiekermann, a comprehensive picture evolves of the design and use of letters. With contributions especially designed for this book from Erik van Blokland, Alessio Leonardi, Reza Abedini, Yang Liu, Wim Westerveld, Jaap van Triest, Studio Dumbar and more, and exceptional applications of FontFonts by such designers as Paula Scher, Neville Brody, Max Kisman and Cosmic. Made with FontFont is a survey of fifteen years of cutting edge typeface design. This is no ordinary catalogue of a family of fonts, but a wealth of typographic possibilities, and the ways to enjoy lettering.
