Have a love for words put together with an eye-popping design, or just fonts that are clean cut or smooth? Typography is fun, but there are people out there who have a passion for fonts. The art behind making fonts as well as designing words in a unique manner is done with careful and creative thought. Where one person may think a particular font is great, it may not be suitable for use in everyday design. Well, below are a five websites that I gathered that either may or may not be on your favorite sites to visit in regards to typography. Some are for entertainment, and others contain plenty of articles that will enhance your knowledge on typography.
I Love Typography is more of a journal, but a lot can be learned behind the scenes. Like in web design, this is a great little niche for typography lovers to get more for their fix.
Typographica contains reviews on typeface, book reviews, and more. If it is about typography, this site has it.
We Love Typography is a site that allows you to take pictures, or make graphics, and then share it with others.
Use Typography is a site that showcases websites that use good typography practices. Anyone can submit, but not all are featured.
Of course, I had to give something for those still who are newbies in typography – WebTypography or as it is titled The Elements of Typographic Style Applied to the Web.. However, I think for those who are die hard fans and practicians of typography, this is a great reference manual.
