I <3 Typography Geeks

In other news, Typobituaries is an amusing and very necessary post about fonts that should be put out to pasture. Who still uses Comic Sans?!

i know this post is really old, but I just found it again, thanks to you switching up your blogger account, which caused it to re-syndicate into LJ.

anyway,

Have you had a chance to look at Robert Bringhurst's "The Elements of Typographic Style"? It is an amazing read (even though i'm only on pg 75. I keep finding myself skipping ahead to see what's in store and getting lost in the ligature tables and letterform specimens).
