The History Of Typography

This might blow your mind.

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.

Can you imagine how long this took to create?

This video was created by Ben Barrett-Forrest and Forrest Media.

Amazing.

    I kid you not: This was covered in my first two weeks worth of readings for one of my classes. Minus the stop-motion animation.

    Maybe it’s just me, but I feel like in the world of creative writing and publishing, typography doesn’t get as much attention and praise as it should. Typography makes a book what it is! It’s subconsciously why we love books. Think about it before you admit it to yourself. It’s true. Typography makes a difference in how you read.

  7. Nice one! I’m sure you’ll like the Helvetica, I couldn’t believe a documentary about a type font can be so interesting!

    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.
