I thought this website was cool because it had some articles talking about the history of typography. Putting in to perspective the technical obstacles typographer would go through when the type faces had letters that were difficult to print. For example one article said, “Signature details, like the pipe-shaped tail on the capital R and lowercase a, became traps for ink and pulp…” I just thought that was interesting.

There’s a section of the website that’s interactive; there’s a page full of little posters/page designs and when you click on them the website tells you what fonts were used in the layout. I think this would be very useful for inspiration.
