||If typography were a religion, this would be the Bible. FontBook™ is the world’s most comprehensive typographic reference tool, containing 110 typefoundries and featuring over 620,000 typeface specimens. Use the FontBook app to look up and view fonts by name, style category, typographical subclassification, designer name, foundry name, year of publication, or by similarity of design. Compile your own list of favorite fonts, and use the “compare” tool to test-drive fonts. Specially designed for fast, easy navigation and also works as a fun playground for finding inspiration.
FontBook is primarily an online browsing application and displays its full content only when your device has internet access through a WiFi or 3G mobile connection. However, if you have no online access, you can temporarily switch the “Include online content” setting to “off”. This will enable the app to display a reduced pool of selected content which will work offline. Whenever you do have online access, you can switch back to the full version by switching the “Include online content” setting to “on”.
FontBook will be continually updated with more type specimens as they become available through new font releases and the addition of new typefoundries. More features will also be added on the next version and in future updates, for example:
• search for inspiration by use-case
• search for fonts by language-support availability
