world scripts goldmine

phew!! This scripture site has loads of hundred-year-old bible pages in native languages from all over the world. It's so great to see actual old printed specimens of these languages! I think I saved about 60 pictures from that site. Check it out, for real. (above are Nepali, Bengali, and Tamil)

digital age!

after struggling to read the tiny, unsuitable-for-screen devanagari type in the lessons at livemocha, this design is quite refreshing! From Soft Fonts. I might have to buy this!

Found this on Flickr - Books photographed by a student who went to the University of Reading for type design! (Probably the same class as my type teacher Nicole Dotin!) I totally want to go there someday! If I win the lottery.
