Periodic Table of Typefaces

view larger
This table lists 100 of the most popular, influential and notorious typefaces today. In the style of all the thousands of 'Periodic Table of Elements' posters hanging in schools and homes around the world.

Most people will be aware of the use of the original table, therefore this wouldn't mean much had there not already been a table that is as well known as it is.

Found on the Behance Network.

Typography: Le Vide Papier

'Le vide papier' which translates to 'the empty paper'.

Although it's in French, I find this an interesting concept to get the user to interact with the design, enabling them to take the type away using the transparent sheet, seems rather pointless yet I like it.

It could also be easily used for various other applications.

Printing: Old Computer Stock Paper

view large
If this was printed on ordinary paper without the perforated holes that were found on the sides of old computer stock paper, this wouldn't be as appealing.

Although in some area's writing overlaps images, this just adds to it's fascination. It reminds me of some sort of research page, a much interesting way to present it none the less.
