I found this video on Twitter via one of my favourite bloggers, The Collative.
It’s a really interesting five minute history lesson on the origins of popular typefaces told with bits of paper. Very clever, and very easy to digest too. Like I like my men. No, wait. Like I like my history lessons.
The five minutes of film took 2,454 photos of 291 paper letters to complete!
The video was made by Ben Barrett-Forrest, Graphic Designer at Forest Media. Last year he also ran a very successful Kickstarter campaign to produce the Design Deck, a guide to graphic design in the form of a deck of playing cards.
A pretty talented fella, go tell him so on Twitter.
