Type and Typography

Banner: Visual Communication LinksI love graphic design arcana and typefaces old and new. And the history of type and how fonts are created. This is a list of links to a variety of type and typography sites. Many of the sites in the fonts section have inexpensive or, better yet, free downloads with hundreds of unusual faces.

I will keep adding links to this list, so check back now and then. (The date of this post will stay the same, but you can always get here easily from the list of categories in the sidebar to the right, just go there and click on fonts, lists or typography.)

If you have some favorite links that I have missed please let me know and I will include them.
