Did you know that the typography used in a document can help identify whether a document is real or fake?
In this SXSW submission, Thomas Phinney will present his clues and conclusions from several cases he has been called into as a font detective, including a forged will, legislated point size requirements, a seemingly fake rabbi, an NFL Hall of Fame induction, and documents about President Bush’s National Guard service.
Learn how mistakes in typography, printing and font selection ruined what could have otherwise been perfectly good forgeries!
