    Support Independent Type is a book about the new culture of type specimens, their impact on design and typographic culture at large. It’s a manifesto for independent type foundries showcasing their work in an effort to promote freshly designed fonts, and why we should support them.

    The authors believe that “independent type design reflects culture in its ambition to build an exciting alternative to the monolithic corporate font giants.

    All editorial text from the cover design to captions is set in Di grotesk.
