"I Love ... Regular, Bold, Condensed, Extended and everything in between." shows you a glimpse of the future of typographic design. On the 16th of September 2016, Adobe, Google, Apple and Microsoft announced a new update to the OpenType specification, allowing fonts to be variable. Even though the technology is not yet fully implemented, the idea of variable typographic design seems to be already an unstoppable force in contemporary graphic design. Variable typography allows to use a wide range of styles. It has extreme condensed, extended, light or heavy weights and interpolates everything in between. The designers modify existing typefaces or create new ones. They experiment with any imaginable combinations of styles. Even though the variable font technology might not even be used, the typography of our time is already variable. The question that remains is, will weights such as regular, bold, condensed and extended continue to exists or will fonts be completely variable. This book wants to explore this question and capture the excitingly eclectic world of typography. The golden age of typography is now.
