I found this amazing time line in a book. It is certainly information overload but I wanted to include it so I can look up names of type faces and type designers on it. I want to use it as something to refer back to if I need it. This time line shows many things including ‘Technical developments, important events and publications’, ‘important people’, the birth date of typefaces, images of examples of type, ‘special paintings’ and ‘developments in painting’.
This time line puts everything into context. I won’t be trying to memorise it but it should be helpful as a reference.
I have included each part individually as the writing is bigger on the individual pictures and easier to read.
I used the following book to make this post:
