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?
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.
Check out the first 40 pages of American Type Design and Designers by David Consuegra.
Which 100 years? Fake the teacher out and deal with the first 100.
