Cheshire Dave’s Mastication Is Normal is home of the famous Behind the Typeface: Cooper Black, a clever spoof of VH1’s Behind the Music series. Cheshire’s latest production, Carved In Stone, is a murder mystery revolving around the typeface Trajan. It was premiered at TypeCon 2004 in San Francisco and, hopefully, will be viewable online soon. Update: Chesh called it quits on his site, so I’ve removed the link. I’ve also added a link to Behind the Typeface, but Carved In Stone doesn’t appear to be anywhere online.
Jon Coltz is a statistics guy who discovered type at some point and has been writing about it on daidala. Jon has absorbed a massive amount of knowledge about the subject for someone who is not in the design profession (he won the type trivia contest at TypeCon this year). He is also a very entertaining and engaging writer. Be sure to check out the interviews.
David Earl’s UK-based Typographer.org has gone through several incarnations over the years. When I first discovered it, it was an online magazine with articles about type and featured several writers. Then it changed into a type news blog for a while. A couple of years ago, it changed again and David has scaled back to posting an in-depth article every now and then.
