Book with collection of the most common typefaces (fonts)

2 posts in this topic

Hallo everybody,

I really like to have a handbook with the most common fonts collection to have a speed visual reference( as starting point) to choose a typeface for every project. I mean something which shows the most common fonts (number, symbol, character, families, ...).

There are many online resources but in this case a paper book would be perfect!

Suggestions?

Since there are now tens of thousands of fonts available with dozens being released every week, such books aren’t really feasible anymore. 

Either the choice gets very personal …

… or overwhelming: https://www.amazon.com/FontBook-Typeface-Compendium-Erik-Spiekermann/dp/3930023040/

Having such books doesn’t hurt of course, but as a tool to “choose a typeface for every project” you are missing out on many choices.
