About

This blog was created by two web designers who share the same passion for typography. The content presented here is a patchwork of photos and illustrations from the Web, discovered overnight and all having a relationship with typography in general.

We've chosen to use Typekit to serve the beautiful "Freight Sans Pro", a sans serif made by Phil's Fonts.

You cannot understand typography and typefaces without knowledge and you can’t keep that knowledge for only yourself. Type design is a cultural act, not just a few lines of data in the corner of a hard disk.

Jean-François Porchez, Type designer, founder of Typofonderie
