The book, curated by Marta Bernstein, Luciano Perondi and Silvia Sfligiotti presents a selection of fonts designed between 2002 and 2008, divided in 5 chapters: historical research, experimentation, didactics, commissioned font, independent projects. From the book a spin-off touring exhibition was created, which opened in Turin in October 2008 during the Icograda Design Week and later in Rome (Roma Design Più) and Naples (Design Per).
