Funny, nobody’s mentioned Comic Sans yet.

I was waiting for that!

Font Diner’s Sparkly (which I love, incidentally) seems to have crept into an awful lot of arsenals… I guess it would be wise to include some retro stuff.

Just don’t take Frutiger Next, take the original Frutiger or Myriad. The Next version is so bad.

Hmm, what’s so bad about Frutiger Next, J-F?
The new italics look too much like Myriad, but
is it enough to say that it is such a bad thing?

Out of curiosity, are there any worthwhile scripts out
there?


Adobe’s Bickham is an elegant design, and well
accompanied by beginnings, endings, and flourishes.

JFP, I would also be interested in your thoughts on
Frutiger Next. I haven’t had the opportunity to look it
over, but I was hoping it would be a well executed
update to the family. this might constitute a new
thread, but it is certainly relevant to basic type library
concerns.
