Typography Enthusiasts in Fandom

Postby millerdan2009 » Sun Aug 09, 2015 9:22 pm

Hi, all,

Maybe it's because so many fen are writers or editors, but one prominent subculture within fandom is that of typography enthusiasts. Much as with mapheads, sometimes it's just a passing interest, but many fen take typography quite seriously, from those who can't get enough of the documentary Helvetica (it's been shown on ArisiaTV many a time), to those who make it a fundamental portion of a career in design. Come explore this category of fandom with Arisia, and we'll make sure not to print this panel in Comic Sans.

Thanks,

Danny
