New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I was wondering if some of the knowledgable Typophiles around here could help me out.
Aside from culture-specific writing systems (Korean, Thai, etc.), what kind of type features can be demonstrated as being culture specific?
Are there modern typefaces (as opposed to historical Gothic, Carolingina, etc.) that one can point out as being distinctly French, German, Dutch, etc?
I was thinking about the subject after seeing some of the work Kontrapunkt has done for DSB, designing sans-serif typefaces based on uniquely Danish letterforms.
