FontShop: 20 Years

In 1989 Erik and Joan Spiekermann signed contracts with leading type foundries, packed their small office with floppy disks full of fonts, and started taking phone orders. FontShop became the first independent retailer of digital type. Twenty years later we’re still stocking the best fonts (though the number has grown and the medium has changed) and still answering phones.
