If you ever wondered about the best fonts available in the year 1915 or are interested in what messages different kinds of fonts connote to different people, then Alphabettes is for you. Alphabettes is a blog authored by "a loose network" of 157 women who work in lettering, typography, and type design and "is here to support and promote the work of all women in our fields." Readers can browse typography News & Notes for updates about the field; read Commentary on typography and issues of gender in the field of typography; or check out the Showcase, which features unique typography from around the world (often in the form of currency). While News & Notes is aimed more at professionals, these other sections are engaging to any member of the general public with a curiosity about fonts. And while the Research section of the site veers a bit more toward the academic, visitors may find other bits of interest here as well - including Herbert Bayer's 1926 proposal for a universal alphabet.
