The most expensive India, Ink., post of 2008?

Cash Register

Typographica has posted its fourth annual Favorite Typefaces collection, and for possibly the first time ever, I already own one of the chosen few: Leitura, which I purchased last summer during Dino dos Santos’s krazy half-price sale and even actually used for a project. The other winning typefaces that I covet most fervently are Feijoa and FF Meta Serif, as well as Minuscule and National.

From the honorable mention list, I’ve got itchy add-to-cart fingers over Chronicle, Karmina, Declaration Pro, and Parcel.

Which typefaces strike your fancy?

    I might have found uses for those when I worked for Tor/Forge, but nowadays, not so much.

    I need to think of some kind of ongoing vanity project I can undertake to employ all these typefaces I keep buying. Hmm . . .

    I’m with you / the same way. I always buy fonts hoping I will find a project for using them.

    Damn. Seems like we oughta be able to bonk our heads together and come up with something. And, like, somebody would come along and pay us for it, right?

    I would love to work somewhere where the font library is current. Currently the place I am employed at trashed their entire font library because apparently we owned none of them…you open the W folder, and all that exists in there is Woodtype Orns…

    No more Waldbaum for me.

    I agree about Minuscule…looks like a great option for a new text face, especially for large leading in a magazine, good for that bold type negative spacing aesthetic. Im thinking 10/16 or so…

    Leitura….Im going to agree with all your prefs. I will further ad FAB is less than the name it is to live up to…. Im not a fan of these “types” of fonts…
