fontBoy catalog

Pre-commercial internet—A very early version of the fontBoy catalog from the mid-1990s. The project was distributed on floppy disk. Note the bizarrely convoluted ordering process.

Designed with Dave Granvold of Specimen.

From the third edition of “A History of Graphic Design” by Philip Meggs: “A sophisticated aesthetic parodies itself, in counterpoint to the restrained utilitarian focus of many interactive designs.”
