The History Of Typography

Created by Ben Barrett-Forrest, The History of Typography is a charming, informative stop motion short created using 2,454 photographs, 291 paper letters and 140 hours of work. Some really cool trivia in this short, including how italics were developed off of roman type to save money by fitting more letters on a page, or what 'serif' actually means (I've wondered about that for years now).
