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 typeface name, type classification, designer name, foundry name, year of publication, or by similarity of design. Now typophiles can browse and compare typefaces on-the-go, at the swipe of a finger.
