Typekit and Makeshift Society are hosting events this fall to celebrate the city's typography. Below, a little of what you'll be in for should you decide to tap into your inner type nerd—in this video, James Victore takes you around Brooklyn in Queens to look at the good, the bad, and the Helvetica.

Victore's "Type Safari" looks at some of that glorious old signage that thankfully still exists on our streets, but also zeroes in on newer parts of our landscape. Take Starbucks, for example—Victore declares: "I don't even know what font that Starbucks thing is: fat nasty Sans Serif?"

Fontphiles unite, there are three events left.
