Periodic Table of Typefaces


I want to eat this in big chunks. I believe it may be delicious. Click on it and gaze upon its nerdly perfection.

What's your favorite, darling?

This is a theme today. On another blog, somebody posted the Periodic Table of Curse Words.

I'm torn on which one I like best.

Steph: if you click the from link, they offer prints and formats of all sizes. I want the wall sticky.

Mama: so hard to really say. One of the more art deco sans serifs.

BE: what's the link on that?

Rockwell is my favorite serif, Neutraface my favorite sans serif. On that list anyway.

OMG. I love fonts!

I've got a taste for type, myself.

I love every aspect of this. I love the Periodic Table of Elements (remember I had that T-shirt?) and I love type. Sometimes, my favorite part of a book is the "About the Type" in the back. Recently, I found an old notebook full of ramblings from my lost years, and one of the things in it was a letter to a publisher asking who wrote those and telling them how very much I like them.

Did you ever send it? I'd be curious myself.

No, it was too stuffy and proper in style.
