Damien Text is the primary typeface used for Yearbook of Type 3. This compilation published by Slanted “presents an independent selection of new typefaces created all over the world—from larger publishers to smaller, independent typographers and foundries.” The third edition (after 2013 and 2015) brings together recently released typefaces by no less than 91 foundries. The collection of typeface portraits is enriched by articles and essays by Boris Kochan, David Jonathan Ross, Ferdinand P. Ulrich, Laurence Penney, Rainer Erich Scheichelbauer, Stefan Hattenbach, and Viktor Nübel.
Damien is used for all text. Small caps from the bold weight were chosen for the rotated running heads. The contemporary serif typeface by the Revolver Type Foundry is paired with headings in Berlingske Sans Display. Damien adorns the book’s spine and back cover, too. The front cover shows a potpourri of other recent fonts, featuring the interlocking Gustan Display Forma, Fino Stencil (with OO ligature), Pilot, Italian Plate No2 Extra Condensed (on an escalating baseline), and Saol Display for the number. The publisher’s logo is in Suisse Int’l.
