Font Faces

Space shuttle gardening, Ikea beer, superhero tech and more in our look at the web this week

“Baskerville,” “Myriad Pro,” “Times New Roman”—every font has a face.

Pinto effectively anthropomorphizes type, representing “Bodoni” as a moustachioed Italian and giving “Futura” the mien of a stylish male.
