Type: The Spirit of the Stone Type
An interesting examination of 3D type, and the history of it as it relates to the ingenious work of Will Eisner, through his character THE SPIRIT. The “faux-stone” or at least, the blocked out 3D typeset is something that doesn’t seem particularly revolutionary these days, as it’s been widely imitated. However, this article does a fantastic job of chronicling its rise to prominence as well as Will’s own experimentation and maturation with it. Definitely a fascinating read.
