Your Daily Dose of Type
TYPODARIUM is a tear-off calendar, just like the one our grandma used to hang in the kitchen. But this calendar unveils a new font everyday. We can therefore have, a whole year long, the chance to broaden our knowledge, to discover the font’s history and development, to possess a piece of jewellery that is new everyday. On the front, the font will be prominently displayed, and on the back it will be described in details. How it originated, from what or who came the inspiration and where we can obtain the font. We really want a story about your typeface!

If you would like to be part of the renowned type calendar with a typeface, please contact us via [email protected]. Thanks a lot!
