A “Letter” of Apology
Typographunnies has shut down due to a request from the Type Directors Club. Apparently, a website of typographic humor perpetuates the critical stereotype that type design is ineffectual and pointless. The jokes exhibit “a distasteful disregard for the rich lexicon that typographic history has brought about.” Humor is a threat to those serious in the craft of typography. I apologize hesitatingly to the typographic community for my grave offense — I thought it was acute gesture of typographic appreciation. If you would would like to fight with me, sign the petition to bring Typographunnies back or send me an e-mail for more information.
