Created by Pentagram, this short video is basically a fascinating commercial for Syracuse university... about what we all wrongly call "a font." It's superbly done and the bearded professor should do his own show. I'd watch it.

The tale of rediscovering Sherman, a typeface designed by Frederic Goudy in 1910 and revived by Chester Jenkins in 2016 for Syracuse University.
