A Visual Exploration of Classic Type With A Contemporary Lens

I find it quite fascinating that the past is slowly revealing itself to us once more. Things from the past really are making a comeback; including,  but certainly not limited to,  our typefaces.  This morning I came across an article about a type book.  Not just any old book all about type,  but a really great look into the old becoming new again. 

It really is fascinating to see the history of the times.  In every decender,  in every crossbar. Just like how when creating our own history now,  in 2017.  And someday,  this time too will be history. 

Like with other design, sometimes you just have to return to what used to be and review with new eyes. 

Check out the book here.
