Handy Type Links

Here are a couple of my favorite type-related places on the web:

Typophile Forums is where most of the action is taking place these days. From newbies to seasoned type designers, they’re all here talking about type. I especially like hanging around the Type I.D. Board, where everybody wins as type nerds from all over the world compete to see who can identify typefaces the fastest.

Unlike Typophile, Typographica is a group blog featuring news and items of interest about type and typography. Fierce debates are sometimes lurking in the comments. Tip: You can always tell what topics are hot by watching the “Commented” box in the right column. Chief editor Stephen Coles promises more substantial features (like my recent interview with veteran type designer Phil Martin) to come.
