In addition, an index allows the reader to look for fonts according to their classification. Several chapters presenting type designers, foundries and background knowledge on typography as well as practical advice complement the detailed listing of fonts that constitutes the main body. Emotional, evocative and informative designs paired with a high practicability - 'The Yearbook of Type' is meant to inspire as well as support people working with type.
