I LOVE great fonts. So what would be cooler than a hanging a Periodic Table of Typefaces in my home office? Not much. Adding it to my birthday list now... (hint, hint)
Unlike many of the the other over-sized Periodic Table of Elements posters hanging in
schools and homes around the world, this particular table lists 100 of
the most influential, popular, and notorious typefaces around today.
This table presents the subject
matter grouped categorically, by family and classes of typefaces: serif, sans-serif, script,
humanist, slab-serif, blackletter,
glyphic, display, grotesque, garalde, geometric, realist, didone, and mixed.
The best part is how the table is ranked. It was determined by statistically sorting and combining lists
and opinions. Note the absence of Comic Sans, Scriptina, and Papyrus!
A wonderful resource for any graphic designer, I'll be sure to reference this functional piece of art in my future designs.
