The New FontBook Has Arrived!

FontShop is thrilled to announce our new FontBook™ iPad app, the world’s most comprehensive typographic reference tool! Download the app for just $5.99/€4.99 at the iTunes App Store.

Moving the book into the online realm allows us to increase the number of font samples from 32,000 to an astonishing 620,000, while reducing the weight of the book by 80%. Use the FontBook app to look up and view fonts by name, style category, typographical subclassification, designer name, foundry name, year of publication, or by similarity of design. Now typophiles can interact with and compare typefaces on-the-go and with the swipe of a finger.

We can’t wait to share more highlights with you in the coming days — stay tuned to FontBook.com, The FontFeed and the FontShop Blog for inside looks all this month.

Enjoy!

    Awesome!
    But I can use it if I’m not an I-pad user?
    Thank you in advance for the information.
