FontBook Features: Browse By Year

Now that we’ve unleashed the FontBook iPad app on the world, we want to take some time to show you all the goodies packed inside. Watch for our FontBook Features posts throughout the coming weeks. Also, remember if you have general questions about app, we’ll keep our FAQs documented here.

A stunning look at the typographic timeline can be found by clicking on “Year” on the homescreen on the app. You then have the ability to browse by century, then decade, then year as type progresses.

Drill in and you’ll see all typefaces created during that timeframe (or their modern equivalents).

This is a great route to take to a product page, especially if your design is trying to capture a certain era.

Have you browsed by year yet?

    I’m so sad.
    I’m a poor and stupid pc user.
    And this fantastic app is only for rich and smart i-pad users :D
