If you know about the perfection that is Helvetica, then this post is for you - especially if you've ever balked at homework handouts in Comic Sans, cringed at the sight of Papyrus on a restaurant menu, or pinned a few/all of the font roundups on Pinterest. (I'm certainly guilty of that last one.)

Typography is an art form in itself, ever since the invention of printing, and it's been the driving force behind much of the dispersal of the mass-produced written word. Besides its gross historical significance, of course, it's also a pretty sweet thing to incorporate into your dorm style.

Whether you're a total font nerd or simply appreciate the way that letters look on pillows, prints, or comforters, typography is a sleek and simple way to add some interest and style to your room, without breaking the bank.

Read on to see some typography-inspired items for your space:
