I’m in love with type since 2009. I explored a lot through this time and I’m sharing here some cool typo resources. I will update it systematically!
Maybe you will find here something interesting for yourself. Only stuff for free or at a super affordable price.
It is always worth checking type designers and lettering artist shops. Sometimes they sell not only fonts etc. but also ebooks about their process. Pure treasure and so fun to watch!
