In the Mood for Type Trumps?

Type Trumps by Rick Banks is a game in which different typefaces are attributed numerical values. Banks has given each typeface a ‘rating’ score, a ‘legibility’ score and even a ‘special power’. A few of the fonts in this game are Frankfurter, Times, Helvetica, and Johnston Underground. This novelty is available at Face37 and Magma Books.

  1. Thanks for making the honest attempt to discuss this. I believe very robust about it and want to read more. If it’s OK, as you acquire more intensive wisdom, would you thoughts including more articles very similar to this one with more information? It could be extremely useful and helpful for me and my friends.
