I love letters. by axlesax I love letters. by axlesax
Here is my contribution to the Original Quotes Challenge. As a typography lover, I don't have much to say but this : "I love letters".

But type is made of numbers as well. And I had few occasions to work with it, so I decided to write my quote with numbers, instead of letters (yeah it takes more time).

All the typography connoisseurs will recognize different fonts here and there. You're gonna find 100 different fonts used in this picture, mostly free fonts I've used in my "Type Songs" posters, but also popular fonts like Caslon, Gill Sans, Helvetica or... Comic Sans MS.

Please vote if you'd wear this. Imagine how great and awesome you would look. Thanks a lot !

Haha, that's brilliant.

...totally went looking for the Comic Sans, I had to see it to believe it :P As it turns out I don't remember what its numbers look like.

I should check my hi-res file to confirm this but if I remember well, the number 4 at the bottom of the R is a comic sans.

There's at least 2 numbers of every font among the 100 I used in this picture. I might publish the list later.

Oooh...could be. I thought the numbers were a little curvier, but seriously I never used them :lol:

Do that!

I'm not sure if numbers and letters fall under the same category.. but that might be why I like it so、

good job!

Well if you consider typography as the technique of arranging type, it's pretty obvious that numbers belong to typography as well as letters.

Thanks a lot for your support !
