Average Font by Mortiz Resl shows what a font would look like if it consisted of all typefaces installed on his system. Every character from a to z is drawn using every single font with a low opacity. In total there are over 900 typefaces in his library. And, he didn’t exclude the ‘ugly’ ones.
The Average Font is typographic poetry.
Gosh, what an interesting project. Actually I love the “X” image as a poster.

I love these – especially the ghostly shadows around each letter! I wonder if he’ll be creating an actual font package out of these…

I don’t know, I love typography, but something about this just seems like too much time on his hands….sorry ?

Poetry, maybe. But not very interesting.
