The new Yearbook of Type features White, Black. Gray!

I am happy to see my article, White, Black. Gray! – Why Sketching Matters, published in the new Yearbook of Type (#4 2019/20). It is part of a comprehensive series of instructive articles focused on various aspects of type design. My article appears at the beginning of the book in order to reflect that sketching happens at the beginning of the design process and provides the basis for a typeface’s development.
