Our latest edition of Monograph, free with subscriber copies of CR, features 15 full stops from typefaces in the Monotype archive. How many typefaces can you spot? (Bonus points for the designer’s name and year)…

In July this year, Monotype celebrated the last 100 years of type in design, with the Century exhibition at the AIGA National Design Center in New York, presenting archival pieces from design and cultural institutions.

Starting with number 1 above, see how many you can guess. Answers can be found at the end of this post.

Remember when Levi’s ads were great?

Levi’s has a new ad out.

Yet rather than making this the greatest Levi’s ad ever, by echoing these classic ads this spot just makes me miss the jean brand’s advertising glory days…
