Favorite Typography Sites
Type is fun. Virtually everyone who uses InDesign also uses type. So, even though this doesn't relate directly to InDesign, it probably relates to you. One of our favorite vices is looking at type. While we can't say we spend nearly as much time exploring fonts and typography as we'd like to, we just wanted to share a couple of our favorite type sites, plus a bunch of sites that we look at sometimes, plus some that we just found while researching this... all with the idea that y'all could chime in and share some of your favorites (or you can comment on the ones listed here).
Note that we're focusing on sites about type, not where to buy fonts. We all know there are loads of places to buy fonts, but let's look at where to get the inside story on them.
- John D Berry's blog (I've known John for many years and I love peeking inside his brain. He has lots of articles at CreativePro.com, too.)
- More article about fonts at creativepro.com.
- Thomas Phinney's blog
- The ABC Typography virtual museum of typography
- I Love Typography
- Planet Typography
- Typography on Wikipedia (cooler info than you'd expect)
- Diacritics Project (how to design and why to use diacritical marks)
