I learned about this blog through a Leadership Wilkes-Barre classmate on Facebook.  Lisa Reynolds alerted me to a very cool blog called "Wilkestype", a typography blog by students at Wilkes. 

This blog is an exercise for the students of Cross-Media Typography at Wilkes University. In it, you’ll find samples of type that we’ve found a deemed awesome. So browse through, and feel free to agree or disagree with our opinions!

You may have never thought about it before, but typography is an art form.  I know that I haven't.  It's one of those things that we may see every day and not give second thought to.

Typography is defined as (from the Greek words τύπος (typos) = form and γραφή (graphe) = writing) is the art and technique of arranging type in order to make language visible. The arrangement of type involves the selection of typefaces, point size, line length, leading (line spacing), adjusting the spaces between groups of letters (tracking) and adjusting the space between pairs of letters (kerning).  Source = Wikipedia

We hope that you enjoy the word art that Wilkes has to offer.
Happy Sunday!
