type (development) overview / poster

curtze's picture

hi - does anybody know a good poster or overview that outlines type families and puts them into a historical (or geographical) timeline?

i'm newly teaching typography classes and would like to help students find their way around the classifications and history of type design. any ideas?

much appreciated,

Like this? Stammbaum der Schrift – a family tree by the Bauersche Gießerei, from 1937. Thus, not perfectly up-to-date.

looks good!

that's exactly what i mean, if it had a few more details. and - obviously - would cover the latest developments ;-)
