4th of December: Typography – When Who How

https://i2.wp.com/img2.imagesbn.com/images/4410000/4414601.gifThe internet (and indeed the real world) is filled with people who care deeply about typography. Almost every font has its supporters and detractors and in some instances the fonts you use can say a lot about you. Even so a whole book detailing the history of typography might seem a bit much for the casual observer. Until, that is, you get a few minutes to spend with Typography – When Who How. Written in three languages and covering several centuries of design this book is nothing if not comprehensive. However, it is much more than that as each page is filled with beautiful examples of the subject from modern British road signs to sixteenth century bibles (and because it’s organised alphabetically these appear on the same page).
