Periodic Table Of Typefaces

I love type and I love the periodic table, so I adore this mashup by designer Cam Wilde: The Periodic Table of Typefaces. The table is available as a poster, a giant wall decal and even a Moleskine book cover!

The Periodic Table of Typefaces is obviously in the style of all the thousands of over-sized Periodic Table of Elements posters hanging in schools and homes around the world.  This particular table lists 100 of the most popular, influential and notorious typefaces today.

As with traditional periodic tables, this table presents the subject matter grouped categorically.  The Table of Typefaces groups by families and classes of typefaces:  sans-serif, serif, script, blackletter, glyphic, display, grotesque, realist, didone, garalde, geometric, humanist, slab-serif and mixed.

    Thanks for the kind write up! One quick clarification though: that’s not an iPad cover; I suspect you’re referring to the Moleskine book cover, which is almost as cool!
