    Thank you for the ‘typefaces’ correction. We type nerds are pretty particular about that shit :) good story, btw. thanks for posting !

    Actually, “fonts” could be correct in this circumstance given that the post (sometimes) specifies particular styles and weights. (A typeface is a family composed of several variations on a given collection of letterforms.)

      but fonts are the parent file of the typeface, used by printers at the production stage. look at us discussing the all-too-familiar fonts vs. typefaces discussion on MM :)

    uh-oh, too bad tag moved away. i think some of the fonts are identified with the wrong names.
