Periodic Table of Typefaces

Here is a cool Periodic Table of Typefaces…

This Periodic Table of Typefaces is mimicked  after thousands of over-sized Periodic Table of Elements posters hanging in schools around the world.  This particular table lists 100 of the most popular, influential and notorious typefaces today. The Table of Typefaces groups by families and classes of typefaces:  sans-serif, serif, script, blackletter, glyphic, display, grotesque, realist, didone, garalde, geometric, humanist, slab-serif and mixed.

Each cell of the table lists the typeface and a one or two character “symbol”, the designer, year designed and a ranking of 1 through 100.

Click here to purchase the 24×18″ print. Im definitely going to purchase the white print and frame it in a huge white frame. I love things like this.
