"Typosaurus" features headlines from Pittsburgh’s
past, hand-stamped on the newspaper’s signature color,
to create a must-read dinosaur. Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
staff artist Emily Escalante used typography to bring history

selected significant headlines to highlight. The style of
lettering is a reference to the old hot-type technique of
will appeal to everyone who cares about

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has recorded the story of Pittsburgh
since 1786. It has captured its triumphs and tragedies, and
has contributed to the very character of the city.
