Dan Mall Stop Stealing Sheep & Find Out How Type Works

…we humans are also part of this wonderful, if not entirely perfect, system called nature; we like things that look "human" (less than perfect)… Unfortunately, people have long since begun improving on creation… Tree farms are a good example of what some people think nature should look like. If we applied the same logic to type, we wouldn't have any unusual or eccentric designs, where every letter has a different shape and its own individual space. Instead there would only be regularized fonts with nice geometrically defined shapes. How mundane our typographic lives would be.

Letters were originally invented to help communicate not high culture, but mundane things like the amount of goods delivered or their value in barter or currency.

What we have to say is much easier for others to understand if we put it in the right voice; type is that voice, the visible language linking the writer and the reader.

Dan Mall Big Over Easy

Fantastically entertaining. I thought the resolution was a bit far-fetched, but the journey was thoroughly enjoyable. Every time I put it down, I couldn't wait to get back into it.
