I've written a series of poems about typefaces, all of which are imaginary (the typefaces, not the poems). It occurred to me to write these after I'd read a number of books that had "Notes on the Type" at the end, notes which in some cases seemed longer than the author's own biography.
Tangent: Though I guess if it's in his/her own book, it's actually an autobiography, written in the third person. Something to think about next time you're asked for a 50-word (auto)bio.
Anyway, two of my typeface poems were published today at Used Furniture Review. They concern 'Sognidhia' and 'Dardont Modern.' I hope you'll try them.
