Typotheque - History, the font of many fonts

This is a pretty interesting font. Inspired by the evolution of typefaces, it consists of 21 layers that recombine in endless variations. Each layer is an independent typeface but all share the same proportions. I'm not sure how much this can be of use with this font in particular but thought this should be know to exist. I heard about this site and font from Michael Bebout. Thanks Michael. You can go to Typotheque and see more work in a section showing examples of all their fonts in use.
