Printed publications


True to Swiss Typefaces's cross-disciplinary roots, our publications showcase our fonts, not in classic type specimens, but in true graphic design and textual essays. Guest visual artists, designers and illustrators bring our fonts to life in realistic design contexts, making each project a beautiful multi-dimensional adventure.
