Schick Toikka has made a name for itself as a mature and inventive voice in contemporary type design. After five years of making fonts together, it is time to take a look back. The German-Finnish foundry wished to revive the fine tradition of the printed specimen book and asked nine of their favorite designers, illustrators, and artists for personal interpretations of their typefaces. The outcome – a truly collaborative effort – is an astonishing sampler of visual poetry.
