Default Signs & accessibility

Joe Clark writes about typography and accessibility, usually as it affects the web. But for the ATypI conference in Brighton, England, he is presenting a paper on signs in the Toronto subway system.

He has posted a long article on this topic on his blog: “Inscribed in the Living Tile: Type in the Toronto Subway” and it is worth reading, especially if you have an interest in good signs, good typography, and good sense — but maybe even if not. The article includes interesting photographs of the subway stations, the type and type changes, and more.
