A Book about Ray Larabie

In 2011, a student of typography embarked on a journey to discover the designer behind a treasure trove of free fonts on her computer. This discovery led to Ray Larabie, a type designer who has created hundreds of type families since the mid-1990s (many of which were released for free). As a result, Larabie’s fonts have been used across the globe in every imaginable way. The prolific & DIY nature of Larabie inspired the creation of this book, which was designed solely with fonts from the Larabie and Typodermic Font collections. Also included are many real-life examples of Larabie’s fonts in use, as well as an in-depth interview conducted in 2011. We invite you to explore the inspiring, quirky, and beautiful forms of Ray Larabie – The Prince of Fonts.
