    The Schriftenfächer is a type fan designed by Richard Frick and Samuel Marty for students and those interested in typography who want to learn more about (Latin) type and its classifications.

    Around 220 typefaces are shown in a new classification based on historical as well as formal criteria. It offers the opportunity to compare typefaces and place them in their historical context. Medien (Nouvelle Noire) is used for the editorial texts.
