Fonts SK maps the digital type design in Slovakia. Its open-bound softback and minimalist cover design is hidden underneath a dust jacket in several versions, all referring to the variety of content and, with the help of a pangram, to the specifics of local diacritics. The most extensive part of the book is the chronological presentation of the types, all typographically set through short descriptions. The result is a coherent gesamtkunstwerk, with the author being not just an editor of the publication, author of texts, co-publisher and graphic designer, but also a type designer who set the whole book with own fonts.
