What's your type? Tall, dark, and roman? Broad, bold, and italic? Bodoni or Bauhaus, it's a yearlong exploration of the finer points of a dozen iconic typefaces, including the one that gave the Declaration of Independence its distinctive gravitas. Each month introduces a new font, then decodes it by outlining its defining features, illustrating its range of iterations, and illuminating its history and development. All that detail makes this calendar just as fascinating for typography aficionados as for those with a casual appreciation for good design or a curiosity about how the world of type came to look the way it does.
