Shoplifters is a bi-annual publication that doesn’t have a single identity; it’s theme, size, paper, typography, and tone changes each time it’s published.

Issue 8 looks at contemporary typeface design. It features over 100 new, in progress, or unreleased typefaces. It also features an interview with designer Berton Hasebe, an excerpt of a research project and book on the Facit Corporation by Our Polite Society, and a section on real and speculative type design tools by Dinamo. Intro written by Kris Sowersby (Klim Type Foundry).
