To Do[edit]

edit·history·watch·refresh Stock post message.svg To-do list for Wikipedia:WikiProject Typography:

I'm a new editor here apologies if this is in the wrong place. I was reading the article on Kinetic Typography. I found it odd that there is no mention of online video in which kinetic typography has become very popular over the last five years or so, especially added to philosophical arguments and similar such as TED Talks. Would this be something that would be significant to mention?

Peer review[edit]

Good Article nominations[edit]

  • Baskerville. It's currently rated as start quality, low importance, and I think it should be a lot higher on both counts. John Baskerville was a pivotal figure as a champion of readability, and his font is (imho) maybe the most beautiful ever. And, despite being a Baskerville fanatic, I learned a lot by reading the article! Briankharvey (talk) 04:48, 3 June 2010 (UTC)
Note: I'd appreciate if someone knowledgable in printing history and experienced in reviewing would do the review anytime soon. I am asking because the backlog has become huge in GAC and I was forced to nominate it under archaeology, although it is primarily intended and written as a printing article. I am not asking for any favours, just some speed and competence. :-) Gun Powder Ma (talk) 00:13, 26 November 2010 (UTC)
