"Helvetica" edition.

There wouldn't be /lit/ at all if there weren't letters. Even before printing there were distinct and recognisable 'types' of writing, and now after 500 years of printing in Europe and about twice as much in China there are a whole lot more. You're looking at a typeface right now. Even if you don't notice typography, you are still noticing it.

In this thread, discuss typography and topics related to typography. What fonts do you like? Dislike? What fonts do you use in your everyday typing? What's an example of a particularly well-typeset book? Do you think sans-serif fonts for body text in printed books are hard to read? Does bad kerning make you grind your teeth? Is there a particular font you've seen somewhere but can't identify? Any and all questions are welcome.
