Wednesday’s Weekly Reader: Typography

On 06, Nov 2008 | No Comments | In Animation, Book Design, Inspiration, Typography, Web Design | By Lorraine

Welcome to blog post 1 of NaBloPoMo! (Yesterday’s doesn’t really count.) So as I combed through my feed-reader, from the past couple of weeks a lot of really great posts stood out. But since I need to narrow things down and generally like to group them into a theme, I’ve picked all of the great type related posts that stood out to me. I should preface this with just a general recommendation to head over to Johno’s iLoveTypography and check out his Sunday Type posts: always quality stuff so check it out!

For the home and closet:

For the love of Fraktur:

Braille is typography too:

  • And quite beautiful when used in product design such as on these wine labels spotted on SwissMiss:

Type on the Web:

  • I just Stumbled upon WriteSomething today:
    Courtesy of Writesomething
    Looks like a cool project and has a certain appeal as far as being a site totally composed of large type…
  • Jon Tan has an excellent article on using @font-face for embedding fonts on the web…just wish I had an opportunity to use it…
  • design:related reports that Hulu has posted a collection of Sesame Street’s animated shorts on counting. Awesome typography in a lot of them, but where is 12??
  • Coudal recently linked to a scanned in book of Hand-lettering from 1927: beautiful! (and not the first of these I’ve seen floating around recently…and I’m not complaining!)

And on a totally unrelated note, EVERYTHING a Designer Needs is definitely worth looking into. (via Design You Trust)

  1. Some good finds. Like the blah cushion. Thanks for the mention too.

  2. Great post Lorraine! I’m kind of nervous showing my face around here, considering I haven’t posted my pictures of Nürnberg. Soon and very soon, they’ll be up. Thanks for sharing the “EVERYTHING a Designer Needs”, it is full of resources.

  4. Sicher. Diese Wochenende, ich gelobe.
