Ten Years in Type from Fontsmith

Fontsmith, a London-based type foundry, created 10 Years in Type to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the launch of their typeface library. The set of 10 booklets details a short story written by their typeface designers, giving insight into Fontsmith's creative processes and team dynamic, and the collection forms an "inspiration box" of pattern, fonts and story.
