Diacritical Challenge

Squiggly Bits

This poster makes reference to the paucity of diacritics in English. And, when they are employed, they’re often used on loan words—like the French café, for example. Here’s a little pre-Sunday Type challenge for you: name all the diacritics (or diacritical marks), and name the typeface used.

Poster designed by Michael Ciancio (you’ll need to click on the English Language link on the left to see the poster—the site uses frames).

Thanks to Kate Allen who said she thought of me when she first saw this poster. I take that as a compliment :) I guess I should offer a prize. Any suggestions?

See you on Sunday!
