Typodarium 2018
The call for entries for Typodarium 2018 has just started. We will curate the selection of typefaces by getting in touch with typelabels and designers we cherish. If you have any typeface you would like to submit, please contact info@typodarium.de

Typodarium is a tear-off calendar, just like the one our grandma used to hang in the kitchen. But this calendar unveils a new font everyday. We can therefore have, a whole year long, the chance to broaden our knowledge, to discover the font’s history and development, to possess a piece of jewellery that is new everyday. On the front, the font will be prominently displayed, and on the back it will be described in details. How it originated, from what or who came the inspiration and where we can obtain the font. We really want a story about your typeface!
