Today's Type Tuesday prematurally celebrates the birthday of William Addison Dwiggins! Dwiggins, born June 19, 1880, was an American type designer, calligrapher, book designer, illustrator, commercial artist and wood carver who opened his own marionette theatre. In celebration of this multi-talented and supremely interesting fellow we offer a selection of some of Dwiggins' work.
