history of typography.

history-of-typography

I am in love with fonts.  In a different life, i would sit in a studio all day designing fonts.   I am perpetually looking at fonts: on signs, on websites, in films, on cars, on badging, on artwork, in books, in magazines, old, new, ugly, beautiful—they just fascinate me!

Here’s a wicked and creative video flashing the history of typography in  5 minutes, by Ben Barrett-Forest:

This is beautiful.  I wish my Anatomy books looked like this when I was in Med. School.  A concept for a futuristic/re-imagined/beautiful anatomy/osteology book by Irene Shkarovska.

Irene: if you’re reading this.  I want a copy….or two!  Just take my money.  I’m blown away.

Character: Recycling Typography.

Take old letters from neon signs, swap them for LEDs and place in nice, dark, mysterious locations.   That’s what Aleksi Hautamäki has done with this Character series.

I am obsessed with fonts…and in another world, in another time, I would have devoted my life to finding the perfect font.  However, in this one I am relegated to simple appreciation.

if you follow the link at the bottom, you can buy one of these light filled giant letters starting at 200 euros.
