Gregor Stawinski has compiled over 400 classic 19th- and 20th-century fonts, presenting them in the style of old type specimen books. Arranged chronologically into eight sections that cover stylistic eras like Art Deco, Bauhaus, Sixties, Disco and Punk, every example is displayed with famous applications that these fonts received, from movie posters to product packaging. With his introductory essay and the text that accompanies every chapter Stawinski makes the case for why these fonts remain so popular today in a world that embraces and reinvents almost everything retro.

More than a gorgeous and informative type specimen book, however, Retro Fonts also includes a CD-ROM with complete sets of 222 of the featured fonts, making this book an invaluable tool for graphic designers, typographers and creative directors all over the world.
