There was a time when a type director’s wall was a constant source of typographical inspiration
for art directors working in advertising agencies. You would find hanging on these walls, type
specimen sheets supplied by the leading type foundries, and type shops of the day, along  with
samples of how these typefaces could be used for an ad campaign or a design project. With the
advent of the desktop computer though, most of those inspirational walls have long disappeared.
Therefore, R. Frank Wakeman presents his “Type Director’sWall”
