Default Type fun

A collection of type-related images and entertainments from Belgrade: Tipometar.

To get you started, click on Recent and discover an old favorite: “Bembo’s Zoo,” in which characters from the typeface Bembo are arranged to represent animals.

And “The Disheveled ABC of Winged Dragon” (“L’ ABC decoiffé du dragon ailé”), a charming abecedary featuring art from the 15th-century Missal of Rouen (Normandy).

In the Reprint section there are several essays on Jan Tschichold, an essay by Beatrice Warde, “On the choice of typeface,” and another on Giambattista Bodoni’s lifestyle.

And more.
