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.

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.

Awesome cheat sheet. It's a thorough and clear summary of the anatomy of type. Definately my favourite study guide! :D

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.
