_Comic Sans Micro Exhibition

Everyone knows this so-called worst illegible typeface Comic Sans. Comic Sans is a casual script typeface designed by Vincent Connare and released in 1994 by the Microsoft Corporation. It is classified as a casual, non-connecting script, and was designed to imitate comic book lettering, for casual use in informal documents. Comic Sans has become the subject of a campaign by some designers to limit or eliminate its use, on the grounds that (as typographic purists claim) it is poorly designed and that its inclusion in the Microsoft system fonts package lends itself to inappropriate use—for example, as a text face in documents or at large sizes in signage. There are several campaign to ban the font itself; Here, we are finally decided to create a small exhibition for Comic Sans in typographic art that was selected from several artists.
