Depending on who you ask, where you look, Joseph Churchward has produced upwards of 5000 typefaces. Perhaps not 5000, but 500 at least, all of them insanely well-crafted and seemingly alive. There was a book produced last year, edited and designed by David Bennewith, which sought, rightfully, to raise awareness of Churchward’s work. Apparently there are a few copies left, somewhere. Let us know if you find one.
