My weekly round up of typographic goodness from around the web.
High Quality Free Font O’ The Week: Kaine Block
Download it now. This solid and sassy slab serif is the work of type designer Jonathan Hill from The Northern Block. I really like the stencil-like blockiness and the hand-cut feel to the lettershapes. Free for commercial or non-commercial use.
Woof!: Dogs as typefaces
This was making the rounds last week. The Humane Society must stepped in to prevent them from finding a Comic Sans dog. (via swissmiss)
Wonderfully thorough presentation deck by Sean Gaffney and Matthew Smith. Really covers it all. Uber clean design too. (via behoff)
Type reading: A few things I’ve learned about typeface design
Wow! Just, wow. Amazing exploration of the art of typeface design by Gerry Leonidas, Senior Lecturer in Typography at the University of Reading in the UK. Wish I had a cool title like that. The examples alone are mouth-watering.
Have you come across something amazing and typography-related online? Let me know!
If I include it in an upcoming edition of TypoTh, I’ll give you credit.
