The History of Typography

I was reminded of this lovely stop frame animation by Ben Barrett-Forrest on the history of type during my preparation for an introduction to letterpress workshop last week. The animation goes through a brief initial history of printed type and gives a great overview of 18th & 19th Century type with lots of neat visual tricks. It’s a great initiation into the history of type in a visually engaging way.
