    Schrift. Wahl und Mischung (“Type: selection and pairing”) is an extensive guide into the subject of choosing and combining typefaces. Written, designed and typeset by Kai Büschl and Oliver Linke – both typedesigners, typographers and lecturers – it details the historic, technical, and aesthetic background of todays typographic practice comprehensively. The book was published in 2021 by Rheinwerk Verlag and serves as a reference for both students and professionals alike.

    Both content and figures use a range of typefaces, some of which are designed by the authors, and all available from their Lazydogs foundry: LD Moderne Slab and LD Grotesk are used on the book cover. The interior adds LD Moderne Antiqua, LD Elsnac, LD Fabiol and LD Vela to the mix.

      A wonderful guidebook. I received the first edition a week ago and can only recommend the book. Even though I rarely do so in relation to products.
