Behind the Typeface: Cooper Black

Behind the Typeface is a mockumentary video by "Cheshire Dave," font-lover and web geek. For all the VH1 junkies that remember "Behind the Music," this will bring back memories and then ruin those memories by teaching you way too much about this Cooper Black font.

I realize I probably just made everyone cry with that last statement, but bear with me cowboys! See, non-font people think fonts are super-boring (this is correct 90% of the time), and font people are an irrationally emotional bunch. Every time anyone misuses the term "font" when they really mean "typeface," a font-lover gets their panties in a bunch. FONT FONT.

Anyway, this video is super long, but worth it. Simply because mockumentaries are hawt.

Note: this video was previously kicked off of YouTube. Chesire Dave had posted it there, but Youtube tore it down at the request of Viacom (supposedly). Now it's hosted on Enjoy!
