"Although typographers would like to pride themselves on the logic and precision of their profession, it is in fact not so clear-cut. Typography seems exact because much of it has been done in the same way for so long. There are really only a few fundamentals that are set: we read from left to right and from top to bottom. Letter shapes and letter sizes are reasonably limited. But beyond that we rely primarily on emotion."
Gerard Unger, 1992

It aims to illustrate the depth and import of type, and to raise relevant questions about how typography is treated in the digital media, specifically online. A continuous work in progress, we welcome any suggestions and comments concerning the site.
