Tales of a Type
A series of tales from various types who tell us how they came to be as they are today.

Our twenty-seven Tales of a Type offer an intriguing insight into the fascinating and sometimes mysterious world of type design.

The twenty-six principal stories cover an idiosyncratic selection of typefaces whose names begin with A and run right through the alphabet to Z. You can find out which types we talked to by clicking on any of the letters below. As you'll see, there's an extra character we simply couldn't leave out, for obvious reasons.

We had a huge amount of fun writing these tales and developing a way of displaying them, initially as a set of images for the web, with other ideas in the pipeline.

We hope you’ll enjoy reading them. We enjoyed making them!
