Semiotics of type

When I was considering what to do for my thesis I landed on the idea of “the semiotics of type” in other words what meanings are conveyed subliminally by the typeface used. I struggled with finding references for this and as I was only doing a BA not an MA so I settled on instead on another topic (the “genderisation of humour – a comparison of the humour used by male and female cartoonists.” if you were wondering!)

The semiotics of type still intrigue me. Now there is a  set on flickr by Lars Willem Veldkampf which has explored this area called typocalypse see if you agree and read the comments
