Dutch Type for everyone!

Where to buy?

The Dutch Type revival was supported by around 700 backers. The campaign’s success incited Jan to print a serious run — which turned out to be a bit too many. The 2004 price, which was not raised, now seemed kinda expensive to many. Under the corona crisis, the sales stalled. So, two years after the campaign, we reduced the price drastically to make the book more affordable & accessible. It worked and Dutch Type started selling again. A new opportunity to acquire the book which, according to FontShop founder Erik Spierkermann, is …

“…The best book about any type anywhere, ever.”
