30 Essential Typefaces for A Lifetime
My bro recently blogged about the book 30 Essential Typefaces for A Lifetime which is a survey of 30 important typefaces.
Here’s the list. The ones installed on my computer (woefully few) are in bold:
- Sans-serifs: Akzidenz Grotesk, Avenir, Bell Centennial, Bell Gothic, DIN, Franklin Gothic, Frutiger, Futura, Gill Sans, Helvetica, Meta, Myriad, Trade Gothic, Univers and Vag Rounded.
- Serifs: Adobe Caslon, Adobe Garamond, Bembo, Bodoni, Clarendon, Courier, Excelsior, Lucida, Minion, Perpetua, Sabon, Stempel Schneidler, Times New Roman, Trajan and Walbaum.
I hope you have more of these gems than I do.
