The Elephants of Typography

I drew this comic after spending some quality time with The Elements of Typographic Style by Robert Bringhurst. It was a engaging and thoughtful book on a subject that can seem frighteningly esoteric to non-designers. Still, no book exists that cannot be improved with elephants.

You can order a poster at my shop.


  1. This reminds me of David Macaulay's mammoths in The Way Things Work. I love it.

  2. Yes! That was an inspiration. But Macaulay's mammoths evolved into elephants with a passion for the arts.

  3. Lovely!
    Here is a different take on elepahnts and typography that I found amusing: http://wronghands1.wordpress.com/2012/02/10/elefonts/
