From Gutenberg’s Blackletter to early computers’ Pixel Type, watch the history of typography

From Gutenberg’s Blackletter to early computers’ Pixel Type, this video is a fascinating trip through the history of typography. Creator Ben Barrett-Forrest describes the paper-letter animation process:

291 Paper Letters.
2,454 Photographs.
140 hours of work.

Wow. The least you could do is take 5 minutes to watch it, eh? 🙂
