The Family Tree Of Typography

 
 
 


The Bauer Type Foundry, founded in 1837, celebrated their 100 year anniversary with the release of this beautifully illustrated “Bauer’s Family Tree of Printing.” The company designed linotype typefaces for letterpress printers, so their designs dictated the font of media text centuries ago. The phylogenetic map traces visual history of the foundry’s evolution of text.
