Typeworkshop is an amazing/beautiful/fun example of experimental typography. It was started by the people over at Underware (who also have an amazing book called “Read Naked,” meant to withstand saunas, with parts that can only be read actually within a sauna). Acting as a web platform for real-world type classes, the site displays the amazing work that comes out of each workshop. There’s something about type realized in toilet paper rolls that I go gaga for. I’m a design nerd, I do that kind of thing. Typeworkshop also has a great list of links to learn more about typography, as well as a nice intro to type-basics.
