Letter Index: A Searchable Collection of All Things Type
Feb. 03, 2014
I don't know about you, but searching type and lettering can be a pain. For some reason, many of the online archives I have found are lacking much flexibility in the search function. Often times I want to look up single letters, or a specific style of lettering/type. So I was thrilled to find that my good friend, Evan MacDonald, created Letter Index.
With Letter Index you can look up specific letterforms and type specimens from a highly curated archive of examples. If you are looking for specific characteristics you can search attributes like hand drawn, logo, ligature, calligraphy, etc. Honestly, I could talk about it all day, but go play around with it yourself. It is still new, so the library isn't huge, but you can already see how much better it will get over time. Happy letter hunting!
Here are some neat finds from my last visit on Letter Index:
