Gathering, producing, applying, and preserving knowledge for people's benefit, as noted by the inaugural Editors’ Letter, is the domain of many adjacent fields.

Typography infiltrates all parts of our lives, from building numbers and street signs, to book spines and phone screens. It is a craft with a long tradition, and rewards those who are patient and sharp-eyed.
Codex was born out of I Love Typography, a blog dedicated to making typography more accessible. Codex shares the same fondness for type and lettering, celebrates the people and tools behind the craft, showcases the elegant and graceful, safeguards the hard-won knowledge of the past, and keeps an eye on the future.
