Description
Typography is a bubbling ferment in which venerable, highly readable typefaces (and their descendants) mix with bizarre, sometimes indecipherable display fonts. Each card in this deck presents a full specimen of a given typeface, with upper- and lowercase alphabets, numbers, and special characters, while on the reverse are notes about the designer who created the face, relevant and random history, observations on the design, comparisons with other faces, and the occasional quibble with typographical folly. Not much bigger than a pack of playing cards, this deck contains four dozen attractively decorated cards with individual entries. Use them as flash cards, or for impromptu trivia and quiz games, or simply read them as an unbound book.
