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
