Letterform Archive

Letterform Archive is a nonprofit center for inspiration, education, publishing, and community.

Founded by Rob Saunders as a place to share his private collection with the public, we opened to visitors in February 2015 and now offer hands-on access to a curated collection of over 50,000 items related to lettering, typography, calligraphy, and graphic design, spanning thousands of years of history. The type specimen collection is particularly extensive.

The Archive has welcomed over 5,000 visitors from 30 countries, including students, practitioners, and letterform admirers from every background. The Archive serves a global community through state-of-the-art photography and publications. We offer courses and workshops in type design, calligraphy, and typography
