A lesson in typography
First I want to give a big thanks :glomp: to :iconpatgroove: for the rewriting of this article, which I wrote first in french but the translation was a bit unsound ^^
A Lesson in Typography
I am in love with words and letters. I would like to introduce to you one of my passions:
