Typography Series - 01 - Anatomy of typography by MartinSilvertant Typography Series - 01 - Anatomy of typography by MartinSilvertant
Typography Series - 01 - Type Anatomy
____________________________________

The ultimate guide to the anatomy of type. I believe all the basic anatomy of typography is included. I hope you like it, and feel free to share.

Update:
You can now download a zip file including the file as a 2000px wide jpg and an .ai vector file so you can print the poster as big as you want.

hello, I'm a design student, I have a college project where I am designing a design magazine, I have a Typography section. and I was wondering if you would allow me to use this picture in my magazine. of course it will be credited to you. the magazine is just a college project, so it is not for publishing purposes.

I actually don't think I would've had a use for it, but I do find it fascinating, and as a type designer a summary like this comes in very handy when I use a term most people are not familiar with and I can just refer them to this summary. Unfortunately the typography classes at school didn't quite get into the subject matter as deep as I wished for.

Thank you! I recently realized I forgot to include one element, which is the "chin". It only presents itself in the capital G though and there's no space left for more letters. Ah well, I'm fairly certain there may be more elements, but I covered most of the important ones.

I'll keep that last one in mind. Have you published or will publish an educational book for graphic artists (and others) on the wonderful and mysterious world of typography?

I haven't, but I think when I've written enough articles I might bundle them and publish a book. It's a goal of mine to write at least one book during my lifetime. With the amount I write these days it shouldn't be much of a problem.

Nice. Though, It'd be nice if the numbers were in order on the left side so I didn't have to search for each part.

MartinSilvertant Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2012  Professional General Artist
Thank you.

How do you envision the numbers? I think this is as clear as I could make it. Placing the numbers on the left side would probably make it more chaotic, and I wouldn't know how to specify which element the number belongs to in that case.

:icongraphixs6:
GraphixS6 Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
What I mean, is right now, on the left, you have like 4 7 19 1, etc. It would be good if you had 1 2 3 4 etc. and changed the numbers of the terms so they went in the same order.

:iconmartinsilvertant:
MartinSilvertant Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2012  Professional General Artist
Ahh that makes sense, but then the glossary wouldn't be logical. Indeed it's either a a logical order of the numbers or the glossary terms. I chose the latter. If you know how to work with Illustrator though you can download the file and switch the numbers yourself, in case you want to print it.
