I’m a fan of Studio on Fire’s work. Although I don’t always love the design style of their prints, their presentation is amazing, and I wish I could get a copy of their recent project, a 200-year calendar in German. The photos make it look so rich, and the typography is classic and exquisite. I’m not exactly sure how it works, but it’s gorgeous!
I also like this post from the great type foundry, Hoefler & Frere-Jones, which goes beyond your basic “don’t mix fonts of the same style” and “don’t use more than two fonts” advice. I love the typographic style that’s developing lately which is demonstrated by the samples in the article, although I imagine it will look dated in a few years or a decade. Great to finally get some instructions on how to do it!
