Typophiles, prepare to get giddy! We’ll release a new book soon. “Euclid – Typeface Mystery No.1” will be published in end of March 2021. Pre-order is now open and coincides with the launch of Euclid Mono Vanguard (Swiss Typefaces’ latest font release). Early birds will be rewarded: For a limited period, each book’s pre-order comes with a free license for Euclid Mono. This new font will be made available to you via an e-mail sent by Swiss Typefaces, while waiting for the book release. E-mail with the discount code can take up to 3 days to be delivered.
We’re producing two versions of the book. The Standard Edition can be had for 50 CHF. The Ultimate Edition is a limited run that will be sold at 200 CHF and that includes both the book and the typeface: each copy of the Ultimate Edition comes with a gift card hidden somewhere inside the book. Once you’ve extracted it (surgical equipment required), it will allow you to download the complete Euclid Typeface (4 collections, 55 styles) for free.
“Euclid – Typeface Mystery No.1” goes far beyond being a printed specimen. No only composed of expedient sample settings and mouth-watering glyph bacchanalia designed by Hubertus, the book also showcased a series of photographs taken by Matthieu Gafsou and the mysterious story of the forensic psychologist who investigated the ‘Typeface’ case, a series of cyberattacks involving data viruses hidden in corporate font suitcases – a story written by Matthias Michel. You can read more about the book on Swiss Typefaces’s website.
