DesignHistory: Genealogy of Type

This project was an assignment for my Design History class with Paul Kahn at Northeastern in the fall semester of 2015.

The assignment was to choose a topic of interest and create a genealogy of that topic, using some of the timeline techniques that we had studied in class. I was studying the history of typography for another class at the time, and decided to map out the history of writing styles, from the earliest alphabets up through the modern type classes.
