New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I once saw a french produced movie about the evolution of the roman alphabet.
This short movie described, how the use of uppercase letters developed into lowercase through the discovery and use of paper as media, instead of stone.
It's the evolution also described briefly in Jost Hochuli's 'Detail in typography'
I was actually trying to find a place to buy this movie online, but now I can't find anything on the subject.
Does anyone know where to buy this film or know any websites with a more thorough description of this evolution of capitals.
Thanks in advance
