New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
Not necessarily in the historical context...more like objects we use daily that are indicative of our culture, lifestyle, etc.
Fast food (McD, wendys, burger king, pizza, etc)
iPod (not necessarily indicative of just US culture, but more generational)
What else? Would love input from someone who is American, as well as any outside perspective on American culture from the international Typophile contingent.
