More Ngram fun

In 2010, I posted a not-too-serious analysis of typeface mentions in the Google corpus using the then beta Ngram Viewer. Having read about statistical parsing of novels, I thought it was time to play with it again, this time plotting the eclipse of Stanley Morison by Jan Tschichold. But then I found that William Morris eclipses them both …

Jan takes over form Stanley circa 1997

Mmmn, William peaks in 1900!
