hmmm, i remeber the shirt it was printet with: *H e l l v e t i c a* in a fraktur type. black letters on a screaming-yellow shirt . fantastic! i think it was from fontshop
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.
