Planet typography

From A to Z... all the letters are on Planet typography.

Planet typography is a portal dedicated to typefaces and typography which proposes a comprehensive directory of links, a webzine which introduces the most famous contemporary type designers (in the October issue, Jonathan Hoefler, designer of Hoefler text), a typographic manual, a bookshop and a section dedicated to the freeware creation.

The site was launched in 1999 and is edited by a typo addict (but who does not work in the graphic design industry). Its target is to educate type users (all of us who have a computer) to the art of type creation and to vulgarize its unknown art.

A new version has been launched in October.

FWIW, on your Foundries page, you might want to correct the spelling of
Independant to Independent, which is the way it appears in the dictionary.

Thank you Mr. Loubet del Bayle, I will visit the site in the next weeks.
You might want to rethink the top right grey part of the home page,
in my opinion it is weak, and also the part of the 'g' loop in the logo is too fat,
more visible against the white background. Regarding the color-rollover
for Magazine, Manual, &c., I would do the opposite since I cannot read the links.
Also what is the purpose of attaching an image in that size here ?
