Typography DEconstructed


I learned typography on n old letterpress in my parents basement so saying I am a type hound is a bit of an understatement.  Typography s a dying art and most designers I come across these days don’t know an ascender from an arc of stem and that’s just wrong and sad. So do your a favor and take some time to study typography deconstructed which is a great site and letterpress poster that goes over all the critical basics of type anatomy.
