36 Days of Type

MAY 18, 2016

I recently played a game on Instagram where everyone posted a different letter of the alphabet each day. It's fascinating to see what your contemporaries, both professional and otherwise, come up with. Especially cool is that they were from all around the world.

I went back and, agonized through years of making words and found 26 letters and 10 numbers. My goal: find the ones I liked the best (or hated the least). Of course, when these letters were created, they each had a purpose and a story to relate so, I'm posting them here with some background for each.
