Designer Trading Cards
Found these the other day. Kind of a neat idea - distill the major facts and stats of some of our most influential designers into trading cards - a la baseball cards. These first ones are mostly type designers - Eric Gill, Stanley Morison, Beatrice Warde - and book designers. Longer biographies are on the website.
The concept is cool and I am interested to see who they are going to add next. It's a nice quick way to learn about folks that left important legacies that we can learn from. Learning can be fun.
I recall the AIGA chapter in Boston created a set of trading cards for their designer members in the early 90's. I still have them.Posted by erin at 08:01 PM | in History
