“20+1. Ein Vergleich von ausgewählten serifenlosen Schriften der letzten zwanzig Jahre.” is a study that was produced as part of the “Jahreskurs Typografie” (tgm Munich), led by Rudolf Paulus Gorbach, that captivates both with its content and its careful and aesthetic design: a comparative investigation of sans serif typefaces from the last twenty years.

In the first chapter the proportions of upper and lower case letters are shown. Chapter Two deals with the capitals of the twenty-one scriptures and Chapter Three with the common ones.

Twenty-one (20+1) fonts for one sans serif font each year! A book for all those who daily use sans serif fonts, who are perhaps still searching for the right one and who have always lost themselves in the small, fine but decisive differences, but also wanted to find them again.
