Artworks that include a particular typeface (typically borrowed from an established body of available typefaces) or artworks that comment on the subject of typography in general. A typeface is a style for expressing the letters of the alphabet (while a font is a specific variation of a typeface); for example, Helvetica is a typeface that connotes the clean, minimalist line of modernism. Calligraphy, by contrast, involves the creation of unique, hand-drawn lettering by a particular calligrapher. Historically, typography evolved alongside the growth of print culture, advancing rapidly in the 19th century and becoming a fundamental component of graphic design and fine arts.
