Love of Fonts

I can’t help it. I’ve got so many tidbits about fonts bookmarked that I just have to put them all in the same place. So here goes. And if you’re a Font Fan, as I am, you will probably love all these things as I do.

Books and Informational Videos about Fonts

1) 1000 Fonts – (book) from Chronicle Books. (I blogged briefly about this.)

2) Cooper Black – the (video) story behind the typeface (I will never walk past PayLess Shoes and look at the name the same way again)

3) iQ Font – a font designed by following tracks made by the movements of a car!

Collections of Fonts

1) Star Trek Fonts – a collection of Star Trek-related fonts used all over the Internet, compiled at the Tal Shiar website

2) Such a great (hilarious) idea! This was seen on the Facebook page, Nurses are here to save your ass. not to kiss it! (Punctuation and capitalization theirs)
