Wikipedia… for Type

8/26/2009 Uncategorized

Typedia is a new user-generated ‘Encyclopedia of Typefaces’ (thanks for the heads-up, swiss-miss).  

From the Typedia welcome page:

“We love type, and we have a burning desire to learn as much as possible about typefaces: where they come from, who made them, and why they look the way they do. We want everyone to be able to share in that rich knowledge and enjoy the art and artists of type design.”

Well said.  If you confuse typeface and font or if you want to expand your type vocabulary, it’s definitely worth a look.
