Continuing my ongoing love affair with fonts and spoofs thereof, I give you Cats as Fonts. I think my favourite is Curlz MT, though Porcelain is also gorgeous. And I love Arial Black (of course) and Baskerville.
If you’ve read here for a while, you’ll know about my enjoyment of “font humour.” (Rememer the “Neutraface” video?? Helvetica versus Arial? Or the Font Conference where Comic Sans saves the day??)
Anyway, here’s a new one for my collection. And it will keep you clicking for quite some time, whether you do it just for your own interest, or play it as a game.
It’s called Cheese or Font, and it’s a site where you see a name and have to decide whether it’s referring to some sort of cheese, or to a specialized font. Even if you know your cheeses — and your fonts — very very well, you’ll probably miss a bunch of these.
I, of course, am dismal at this. Ha! And I’m only doing the demo, rather than the actual game where you can get points.
Talk about a fun time-waster…
I am positively squeeing with delight at this video. Best bookish geekish video ever. If you’re mad about typefaces and things like that, you will love Neutra Face: An Ode On A Typeface (A Bearded Poker Face Parody).
