100 years of...

I'm kinda new here but I figured you all are the ones to ask for help.

I'm supposed to make a poster on 100 years of typography in America. Any ideas on where to research this?

Thanks, Lori

BTW, the word "typography" does not refer to a single kind of practitioner, e.g.

Typography is performed by typesetters, compositors, typographers, graphic artists, art directors, and clerical workers. Until the Digital Age, typography was a specialized occupation. Digitization opened up typography to new generations of visual designers and lay users.

Have fun!
