Letters from the Hellbox, part 3
Another great edition of Letters from the Hellbox by Martin McClellan. This installment deals with Jan Tschichold, Die neue Typographie, and Penguin Books’ design standards. This has quickly become one of my favorite serials.

In Defense of Lorem Ipsum
In Defense of Lorem Ipsum, “With respected thought leaders asking us to pinky-swear that we’ll never, ever use Lorem Ipsum ever again, I want to say a few words in support of greek text.” Hell yes.
Notes from Ollie
Animation tricks of the trade, from famed Disney animator Ollie Johnston. Some really great advice here on visual storytelling.

Commercial Type
Commercial Type, beautiful site for a new type co-op. Lots of great faces too, I’ve been a fan of Lyon since the NYT Magazine redesign.
