Font Aid IV Book

Font Aid IV, sponsored by the The Society of Typographic Aficionados (SOTA), brought together nearly 400 type designers, graphic designers, and other artists from around the world to create a font to benefit the victims of the January 2010 Haiti earthquake. The font consists entirely of ampersands, to represent the idea of people coming together to help one another.

The “Coming Together” typeface is available through font distributors Ascender Fonts, Veer, FontShop, and MyFonts. Now available through Lulu, the accompanying book documents this project, displaying the hundreds of glyphs and listing the contributing designers.

All money raised by the project is being donated to Doctors Without Borders to help with their relief efforts in Haiti.
