Banner for Display on Fonts

Library Display
The Right Font for the Job, EJA’s new display on typography, covers a few of the high points in the progression of typeface design and usage since the printing of the first book with movable metal type.

Typeface design has a nearly 600 year old history going back to Johannes Guttenberg’s famous bible ca. 1450. Over the centuries, typefaces have evolved as their uses have grown from printing books and newspapers to advertising, signage for fast moving vehicles, do-it-yourself desktop publishing and the current explosion of digital devices.
The display was created by Mary Kira.
