I wanted to create a programmatically-generated visualization showing how typefaces were related. Unfortunately, what I was missing was the raw data in a convenient format (for example an Excel file or CSV format).
So after a great deal of manual screen-scraping and looking through Wikipedia, I have my initial list stored here: (http://sdrv.ms/WlavyF)
Please feel free to use this data in your own projects. And certainly, if you have suggestions or corrections, please let me know.
The metadata stored includes:
- Typeface name
- Year Created
- Wikipedia Link
NOTE: The database does not contain any sample images of the typeface.
Here is a screenshot of what it looks like. (click on the image to see a larger version)
