Typographic Anatomy

“Think you know your typographic anatomy? Can you tell a dot from a tittle or an aperture from an ascender at seventy-two points?

Typographers refer to elements of a letterform using a variety of terms that align naturally to architecture or the human body—eye, ear, foot, arm, lobe, leg—and we’ve captured many of them in this modernist-style limited edition print.”

Ligature, Loop, and Stem has produced an excellent poster that illustrates the various parts of a typographic character called the Lesson Plan Print.
