If you, like me, are woefully undereducated about the different typefaces out there check out this excellent site: http://www.typeconnection.com/

I would so date Emperors Scrawl and Fairydust. =P

That is a very interesting site!

Reminds me I still have to put more time into typography :) ... but typographers tend to mostly be such an uptight, self-important bunch! :P

Naaaaaaah, you're the left-out part of "mostly". It's an exacting craft - I can see how one might get all OCD over it.

Btw, thanks a LOT, Torstan - that site could eat a big chunk of otherwise productive time ;-) :-b...

Sorry, I didn't mean you :) I had a few specific typographer friends in mind! :)

(of course, what does it help, if they can put a font together, if they thewhen n make a poster combining magenta lettering, white outlines, and an eggshell blue background?)
