Welcome to the TypeCulture Academic Resource - an educational aid for students, educators and professionals who are seeking information about the history, design, manufacture and use of typefaces.
I am pleased to offer this resource; I have long sought after a compendium of reliable information about type and typography for my students. While there are a number of good websites that contain a wealth of links, some of which are included here, the thoroughness and accuracy of other sources often leave much to be desired. So I offer this as a reliable resource for finding out more about type.
I heartily welcome your contributions, corrections and constructive criticism.
A collection of writings about typography and type design.
A collection of videos and short documentaries about type, typography and technology.
The starting point for on-line research into type - clear, well-organized and easy to use.
Proceedings and results of letterform design workshops, design seminars and explorations into type design & typography.
