The History of Typography

During our class time in the computer lab, Mr. Casal showed us a video about the history of typography. After watching this video I learned that typography came from many places and can be made in many different ways! I thought the style of the video was really creative because the person who created it was using stop motion, being expressive, he was using sound effects and  he was describing every single bit. I also learned that letters used to be tall and shaped in many ways.

Me The Corn

I’m in a bed of dirt at beautiful Heathcote Garden.

I am a Corn!

One of a few things on me are a long stem, very long roots, giant leaves and delicious Corn.

I am a Corn!

It feels steaming hot and moist in the garden right now.

Spinach and broccoli are planted next to me.

Worms, ants, small spiders and flies are visiting me.           

I am Corn!

 

One month ago I looked like a sprout with two leaves.

Next month I will be very cold and I will die.

I am Corn!
