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.

What is the m at the bottom, it's missing a number

I find it a bit tricky if I'm searching for a term. I think it would be best to order the terms in order of appearance instead of alphabetically, to help with the search.

This is really cool and helpful and well done. I actually used this to study for a type anatomy test (probably one of the most in depth anatomy charts I've seen). Except there's some errors. (??? I'm sorry! Just what my type professor told me!)

The vertex is closer to 27 than 37. 37 in the inside of a vertex'd letter called the "crotch." The bottom point of a letter like v and w is called the vertex.

I'd rather have the numbers in order on the graphic than have the terms in alphabetical order though, save a lot of hunting for random numbers

this is a useful guide

but it would be nice if the numbers and terms were actually in order

why the fuck are four and nineteen first? why can't the things you labeled on the letter 'T' be the first three you named?

It would make sense, but they wanted to have it in Alphabetical order. So in a way it makes sense for it to be as it is.
