typography day in vancouver

The mayor has declared it Typography Day today here in Vancouver. So to keep with the theme and be a bit of a type nerd, I thought I would post a page from an old vintage book I had found in a used book store last year. The 1962 book (titled "Books!" funny enough) has pages and pages of very cute typography – perfect for today!

One of our first projects in Design was to create a poster out of typography. I made my based on a quote from Stephen King and made a book completely out of typeface. I have a much more profound appreciation for typography designers after having to create something myself.

Thanks for sharing!

Wow! A day for words! I don't think they'll come up with anything that smart for Las Vegas.
