I'm a fairly experienced designer who has recently fallen in love with typography. I'm not sure why it took me so long - but I figure it's better late than never. As a result, I've started to carefully select and purchase a few typefaces that have caught my eye.
What I'm wondering is - how to recommend really mastering a typeface (is that possible?). What I mean is, if you have a typeface like HF&J Requiem - what are the best ways to educate yourself to fully maximize it's potential?
I've thought about gathering different images that use Requiem - but I'm not quite sure how to go about this. Is there a resource available for this that I'm not aware of? I'd love to see how other designers have used it - what works... what doesn't... what fonts can potentially be paired with it. What types of applications it could be used for?
Requiem is just one example. There are about five typefaces that I'd like to take this focus on.
Any thoughts or suggestions would be deeply appreciated.
