Mark Simonson, Let's Talk Type! (1977)

Posted on

Mark Simonson posted a “digitally remastered” version of his first published writing called “Let’s Talk Type!”. I really enjoyed it for several reasons:

  1. It’s very clever how he interspersed real scanned images of the original type samples throughout the text taken from the article.
  2. It looks nice, and was a great idea.
  3. The type is actually very fun to look at. It’s so 70’s and that makes it really fun.

Just for fun, I’ve decided to share my first published writing on the subject of typography. It appeared in the April 19, 1977, issue of Metropolis, the Weekly Newspaper of Minneapolis.> Mark Simonson> . Let’s Talk Type! (1977). 30 Mar 2006. [Online] > Mark Simonson Studio> .
