Typography laid bare
- PingMag discusses the origins, history, and state of Iranian typography & provides numerous beautiful examples. I dig these two in particular.
- Taylor Lane has created a series of typographic pinups (fair warning: there’s some glyph-heavy nekkidness). [Via Marc Pawliger]
- In an inverse vein (not pictures made from letters, but letters from pictures), Giornale Nuovo offers a brief history of figurative alphabets. [Via]
- Joshua Smith has posted a gallery of cool type treatments (including his own logotype) on Hydro74. The rest of his site is worth a visit for dynamite illustrations & more. [Via]
- Type for you is a new typography blog, containing links to useful resources like Typies’ 15 tips to choose a good text type. [Via]
