Almost everything we know in the world can be described in just 26 letters--isn't that amazing?

Yet this most visible art--which we all see all around us each day--has long been invisible in most people's minds. Part of this was intentional-- because the content, not the type, is the message. With type, the media is not the message. But type also adds to everything we read in subliminal and powerful ways, and Typofile is about people who love type, and why.

Nope, this isn't another stuffy magazine about minding your "p's" and "q's." This is about the
love (and use) of type (and technology).
