Creative Characters: The MyFonts Interviews

Perfect for the typeface nerd in your life.

Creative Characters is the MyFonts newsletter dedicated to people behind the fonts. Each month since July 2007, we have interviewed a notable personality from the type world.

The first two years of these interviews have now been collected in a beautifully produced book. Twenty-six interviews, expanded with case histories, behind-the-scenes imagery and superb examples of fonts in use.

Interviewees include David Berlow, Jim ParkinsonCyrus HighsmithRay Larabie, Nick Shinn, Rian HughesAlejandro PaulDino dos SantosVeronika BurianRonna PennerGert Wiescher, Hubert JochamP22, Underware and Jos Buivenga.

Order the book now at, or at a good bookshop near you.  Meanwhile all Creative Characters interviews will remain accessible in our online archive.

When it comes to font design, the initial list features some heavy hitters.  The book retails for $20 and would certainly look spiffy on any coffee table.
