A Typographical Jig

I am currently in the midst of absorbing the plethora of information in Ellen Lupton’s great book Thinking With Type (images above). Highly recommend it for anyone interested in the origins of typography and understanding the principles behind it. It’s clear, ridiculously well researched and often quite humorous.

In a similar vein, Design for Mankind pointed me in the direction of a spiffy site today. For those of you with a soft spot for the ampersand I am pretty sure it will make you smile.
