Typographic glossary

Table of content

Organised around six sections (Typographic visionnaries, Elements of typesetting style, Old Phototypesetter tales, Q&A, The Crystal Goblet and a glossary), these pages were written by Michael Sanborn, formerly a typesetter for a company named Graphion. About his site, the author used to say that “the museum serves as both a gallery of typographic trivia and a repository of information that today's graphic designers really should know and don’t. (…) A lot of elements of typographic art have been forgotten”.

Typographic Visionnaries

This is a gallery of the individuals who, through their creative drive and passion for their craft, formed the world of type as we know it today.
