A Huge Collection of Type

I love typography, so I decided to create a post of all the people I look up to in the field. I personally love hand drawn letters but I also feel that it is not what font you use it is how you use it. Helvetica and even Comic Sans are beautiful faces when used right, but they can also be a default for the unimaginative. So, here it is, a list of inspirational and experimental typographers and their work from around the world. From logotypes to fonts to hand lettering to calligraphy to graffiti, this post has it all.

Thanks Peter, I wasn't trying but your right I think it's close.

And thank you anon, a great inspiration I had neglected to include in the first edition, which is why I am starting to collect names and images of people I missed. Please let me know if there is someone you think is well deserving of inclusion into my next, 450 image, mega post of typographic inspiration.
