From the diabolical mind of design master Erik Spiekermann, and the combined forces of the world’s premiere type foundries, FontBook was born. Weighing in at 32,000 samples from 90 libraries, FontBook is the largest type reference currently in print. Blinded by the glory of FontBook, its publisher FontShop created several fighting arenas to demonstrate its awesome strength. To outlast the massive tome, challengers must dodge deathly blows delivered by 1,760 pages of typographic power. If you and your cronies think yourselves worthy, enter and be tested!

Punchcut is responsible for the concept, art, and game. I wrote most of the copy. Join the melee. I’m usually hanging out in the Haus der Spiekermann arena as “Comic Hans”.
