Favorite 10 For Now (This May Change at Any Moment ... Like Tomorrow)
TheSerif - deGroot (I like Caecilia very much, but the versatility of the
Thesis family makes it most usable for me)TheSans - deGrootGotham - Frere-Jones/HTFKnockout - HoeflerFarao - StormImbiss (Mustardo/Ketchupa/Mayo) - Bruhn/Fountain (some fonts are just a joy to use)Dante - Carpenter/Monotype (takes a lot of work to use, but always looks great in the end)Neutraface - Schwartz/HouseRadio - Rakeng/Thirstype
Georgia - Carter/MS
And this one didn't make my top 10, but it deserves a mention
because it worked so perfectly for the project I just finished - amix CD cover:
Refrigerator - Simonson
Tiff - You've reminded me how much Truesdell makes me think
of Vendetta (without the angularity of course).
(not hijacking thread, just an innocent aside) Stephen don’t you think that Vendetta could be used with Truesdell? Following Dwig’s M-Theory the angularity of Vendetta could be used as text and Truesdell could be used as Display. Truesdell is a pain to work with, but it is beautiful. I wish they’d update it, it seems the way it was digitized … well, I ﬁnd myself to typographic acrobatics to use lining and ranging ﬁgures at diﬀerent times.
In general, yeah, but the basic idea that a straight line can appear curved at diﬀerent sizes is still there.
Not in this thread, please.
