Academic Resource Home - TypeCulture® Welcome to the TypeCulture Academic Resource - an educational aid for students, educators and professionals who are seeking information about the history, design, manufacture and use of typefaces. I am pleased to offer this resource; I have long sought after a compendium of reliable information about type and typography for my students. While there are a number of good websites that contain a wealth of links, some of which are included here, the thoroughness and accuracy of other sources often leave much to be desired. So I offer this as a reliable resource for finding out more about type. I heartily welcome your contributions, corrections and constructive criticism. Mark Jamra
