A Brief History of Type | An Unpretentious Infographic

I just recently came across A Brief History of Type | An Unpretentious Infographic, by Arthur William Presser, and wanted to share his interpretation of the history of type—the short version. This “unpretentious” infographic (as he puts it) is his version of the history of type, from the creation of the printing press in the 1400’s to the development of Helvetica in the mid 1900’s. For the full story, you should check out the book, Just My Type: A Book About Fonts (and read my blog post about it)!
