art for typography junkies

By: admin
If you're someone who knows what I mean when I say "Comic Sans Serif" was the un-funniest thing to happen to typography - EVER - you're probably a typography junkie. The design of written characters is an art unto itself, and has a passionate, cult-like following within the larger pool of design aficionados. Even IKEA's jumped on the typography bandwagon with the rather splendid new Olund a framed artwork. I love how the vowels are printed in red, including the deliciously Swedish additions at the end. Did you actually know that the Swedish alphabet recognizes these variations of "A" and "O" as three distinct letters, thus bringing their alphabet to 29 characters? Fascinating!
