21st Annual Fonts Festival : Videos of type, typography, lettering and more

by Fred Showker

21st Annual Fall Fonts Festival After about a decade of fonts festivals -- once YouTube became main stream -- videos about type, calligraphy, lettering and typography began to become available on the web! For the past four years or so videos on the subject have proliferated -- today there are tens of thousands of videos online all about typography. Some are just typing with music. Many are instructional. Here are just a few we've picked out for this year's venue -- but offer a lot of opportunities once you begin to discover their authors. Have fun
