Typography material by Jessica JonesSeveral folks have inquired about the weird-looking words found in certainly one of my most recent material prints. Various other conversations have revealed that not everyone features heard about the famous fast brown fox. Therefore allow me to demystify the names associated with the materials during my brand-new Typography collection for Cloud9 Fabrics.

In land of typography, “specimens” are types of typefaces used. Specimens show text emerge sentences and headlines to provide an experience when it comes to general surface of a typeface and just what the many characters appear to be. Listed below are beautiful pages from some specimen books. I thought it could be funny to just take “specimen” even more virtually and show arms daintily supporting specific figures as if to examine all of them.

The classic Swiss typeface developed in 1957. This fabric is made with Helvetica, slashed into pieces. Bet you can’t you know what term I chopped up.

Script typefaces depend on the attached outlines in handwriting. This print says, “The fast brown fox leaps within the lazy puppy.” In the event that you weren’t forced to kind that sentence in typing class, you will possibly not know it is the classic pangram that makes use of every page regarding the alphabet. It’s been with us for quite some time. My Helvetica print is also made from this term, though you’d can't say for sure it.

Lorem Ipsum
It’s the placeholder text that manufacturers used in advertisements and leaflets before we have real content from the client. Lorem Ipsum has been doing usage because the sixteenth century. It looks like Latin, but it’s nonsense. You can generate sentences of it in design applications or on this internet site. This might be inside-joke material. Developers snicker everytime some thing appears in public places that still has dummy text with it. Whoops, someone forgot to switch from copy.

I hope you realize that those squiggly characters are known as ampersands. If you didn’t, now you do.

Any single character—an individual page, number, punctuation level, or dingbat. Like, an “A” and an asterisk tend to be both glyphs. Inside material, “123” is certainly not a glyph. It’s three glyphs, but that’s ok. Mainly i simply just like the term “glyph” and it also reminds me personally of a movie scene that made me laugh really hard.

Wood Type
Not so long ago, before contemporary publishing practices, letters were created regarding timber, organized to make terms, inked, and sheets of paper had been pressed onto all of them. Images frequently looked somewhat irregular or distressed. The characters in my fabric print are not distressed in the least, so Wood kind is sort of a misleading title. But fabric designers have to identify their particular images something, and also this printing reminded me of that period when it had been preferred to utilize a crazy mix of various typefaces at one time. A time to which we’ve returned!
