The History Of Typography

The history of typography told very clearly and artfully with a fantastic little video. This will end my tri-fecta of re-blogging for today. I promise.

101 Books

This is a stop-motion animation exploring the history of typography through 291 cut-paper letters and 2,454 photographs.

If you’re a font nerd, or you just love creative videos, this is for you.

  1. If you like typography you should check out this site called FontStruct. It allows you to make your own typography and download it for use, completely free! True it takes some time to make a font but it’s fun to do a bit at a time. You can also download some other people’s fonts that they have made and decided to share.
