This hefty tome from Actual Source features 156 typefaces by 114 designers. A follow-up to 2019's Shoplifters 8, this publication takes a similarly wide-ranging look at contemporary typeface design, spotlighting exciting new developments.
This issue's "Special Features" includes contributions from designer and stone carver Nick Benson and the John Steven Shop, and a conversation between Benson and graphic designer Jack Fahnestock. Also includes: "Modular Typeface Cubes for the Bibliotèque du Luxembourg with Sascha Lobe" by Perrin Drumm; a specimen for Edition Typeface by Elias Hanzer; and "Lines" by AllCaps (an international practice of type designers dedicated to publishing high-quality typefaces: Jan Novak, Malte Bentzen, Ondrej Bachor, and Sascha Bente).
