Arial, Mon Amour, and Other Font Passions
by noteworthy at 9:41 am EDT, May 16, 2005

The Internet is a nice place for font wonks to hang out. They can laugh at other people's typographic blunders, swap alphabets, snipe at famous designers and ban fonts they hate.

Why should you care?

Because everything you read, every sign, book and logo, is in a font. Fonts are like the air: you don't notice them when they are fine, only when they are mucked up or obscure.

When it comes to font rants, though, nothing is quite as bizarre as the Ban Comic Sans movement.
