Fabian Gonzalez must love superheros more than the average man! His newest illustration shows us our ABCs in true superhero style. I got Batman, Superman and Zorro but can someone please name the rest?

Here’s an amazing resource for books on Victorian penmanship that we discussed in class. This collection has scans of original books dating to the 1800’s. I’ve never seen such a comprehensive and beautiful collection of calligraphy! This is definitely going into my favorites folder. Thanks to Anastasiya for the awesome find!
Great list of books in penmanship. The ones we talked about in class. I used them for my calling card assignment.

A great video submitted by Michael Q. on Herbert Matter’s design process in approaching the New Havel Railroad. Check out the hundreds of typographic solutions Herbert created before arriving at the final logo. Thanks Michael!
I chose Herbert Matter, after watching the podcast and seeing his New Haven logo. I did some research online and found a video, (linked) of all the different sketches he made before settling upon the present. Watching the video, its seems that Matter played with a lot of very thin san serif types, many of them italicized or connected.
