Coffee Table Typography

We love words. And coffee.

A newsletter with curated resources about the science and the beauty of typography; in design, on the web, languages, and type history. You will read it over your morning cup of coffee, while the aromas of freshly ground beans are still in the air, quickly realising that words are beautiful and you might need a second cup after all.

Need to take a look first? Here's issue #53, available online.

CTT is more than just an email with links. You'll receive a long form email with a crafted summary of just a few articles about type, or languages, or fonts, alongside news and of course, a coffee article. Issues are delivered every 2 or 3 weeks — and nothing else, ever.


Patreon supporters

Coffee Table Typography is maintained by Ricardo Magalhães, but I wouldn’t be able to continue without the support and love of the community. A special shoutout to all the wonderful people kind enough to believe in the work enough and support it on Patreon ❤️

Patreon supporters will receive exclusive stickers, news, and early access to typography articles that I write. They'll also get coffee on me (or tea) every time I meet them in real life, of course.

Huge thanks to: 🙏
