Laun­ched by Neville Bro­dy and Jon Wozen­croft in 1991, FUSE was the ground-brea­king publi­ca­ti­on that took design and typo­gra­phy into radi­cal­ly new and unfo­re­seen spaces. The major influence of its revo­lu­tio­na­ry and expe­ri­men­tal approach to typo­gra­phic lan­guage rever­be­ra­tes still, and today—twenty years after its launch—the explo­ra­ti­ons car­ri­ed out by some of the most famous and influ­en­ti­al names in the indus­try stand out as futu­ristic and ahead of their time.

To com­me­mo­ra­te the release of issue 20, TASCHEN brings you a com­ple­te com­pen­di­um of all the issues. Exclu­si­ve to this publi­ca­ti­on are FUSE19 and FUSE20, two new­ly-com­mis­sio­ned and never-befo­re published issues, in the form of 10 A2 pos­ters and 24 down­loa­da­ble fonts, making this boxed edi­ti­on a collector’s item. This is the lega­cy crea­ted by the best con­tem­po­ra­ry thin­kers on type­face design: the list of con­tri­bu­tors to FUSE reads like a who’s who of typo­gra­phic design, from Erik Spie­ker­mann to Ste­fan Sag­meis­ter, Peter Saville, Jona­than Barn­brook and Tobi­as Fre­re-Jones, plus many more. Edi­to­ri­al con­tri­bu­tors include Adri­an Shaugh­nes­sy and Jon Wozencroft.

Included in this spe­cial edition:

  • 10 exclu­si­ve pos­ters from the never-befo­re seen edi­ti­ons of FUSE19 and FUSE20
  • A com­pi­la­ti­on of the work of the most inno­va­ti­ve and renow­ned typo­gra­phic desi­gners of the last two decades
  • Key­card with code to down­load fonts from issue 19 and 20
  • Com­ple­te out-of-print issues 1 to 18 com­pi­led in a book desi­gned by Neville Brody
