Resource for type samples
0

I was wondering if anyone knew of a website where I can find examples of different styles of type set on, say, a newspaper or poster. Something like The Book Cover Archive but for a wider range of media.

Just thought I'd give it a go. Thanks for any response you can provide.

There's a great book by Tamye Riggs, called Typeface: Classic Typography for Contemporary Design, which shows many classic fonts "in action".

No disrespect to Typophile, but when I want to bombard myself with type in action, I go to the "What The Font" forum over at myfonts.com. It's only logos, but that is a great way to see random fonts in action.

I keep an archive of fonts in use on my Delicious account. I post my favorite examples on Type Tide.

I love WLT but there is more lettering there than type.
