The History of Type

I am preparing to teach a stop-motion animation class and ran into this “A paper-letter” animation about the history of fonts and typography. If you are a font geek like me, you’ll just love it!

How much effort goes into creating a video like this? According to the creator Ben Barrett-Forrest, 2,454 Photographs. 291 Paper Letters. 140 hours of work.

WOW! A labor of love for sure.
