Dear Before & After
Issue 21’s “What typefaces are best for text?” is the one I refer to the most. Do you have more stories that analyze and recommend fonts? — Val

Dear Val,
We love that article too. Many of our back-issue articles focus on type and the voice your choices convey to your reader. Almost every PDF has multiple typefaces listed on the resource pages, so you’ll know what fonts were used to produce our graphics and text. Issue 32 has a beautiful center spread titled “Frutiger is crystal clear.” (Get out some thumb tacks; you might end up with it as a poster on your wall.) Another of our most well-received articles in the series “Type, the visible voice” was on page 2 of Issue 23. The typeface is Interstate, and it represents the one used on federal roadway signage. Before & After’s publisher, John McWade, makes no secret of his love of typography. While the analysis is time consuming, and there are hundreds of books filled with chapters of long descriptions, John prefers that each article illustrate examples of typeface suggestions and usage. Issue 11 has page 12’s “Typeface Classification” facing page 13’s “Typeface Combinations” for advice and analysis of choosing text faces for your own type library. Then check out Issue 13’s “How to design a wordmark” and Issue 27’s “Discover the logo in your name.” We could go on and on; there are so many articles that jump out as we pulled issues off the shelf and flipped through. An all-back-issues package is available, and, of course, the Before & After books are compilations of those print back issues too.
