This is lovely new tool to help you see the differences between 2 typefaces - ideal for fine-tuning your font stacks :)
There was a lot of talk about punctuation marks, specifically quotes, accents and dashes. Jessica Hische announced her little guide “Quotes & Accents” and amongst the links was this lovely site “codepoints”, retweeted by @markboulton, created by @m_strehl. Definitely worth a look - beautifully put together and excellent references ;)

After a long teaching day, catching up on news and tweets - this was a nice surprise: Clearleft launch the redesign of their site. Beautiful :)
You must have a look ~ the masters at work.
A tweet from @opentype (Ralf Hermann) pointed towards a beautiful video of @jackdzn (Jackson Alves) promoting his workshop. What an amazing type designer… and how wonderful to see a video of his craft!
Following a tweet from @cole007 - I was very impressed with this page on The Guardian's website. Though I like this scrolling effect, I have to admit that I have grown tired of it as it is often used in a similar manner, quite predictable. However, when used for story telling as in this case - I do think it works very well :)
