i'm what many people call a font whore. i'm constantly looking at different kinds of type, drooling over fonts i could buy if i had the money, trying to identify typefaces in various ads, wishing i could take a type design class, and scouring the internet for free downloads. i would die -- absolutely die -- if something happened to my computer and i lost all of my fonts.
anyway, my friend R knows this and referred me to this cool slide show about the ubiquitous helvetica font. there's even a moma exhibit about it, which i'm tempted to go to during our trip to nyc ... if i can convince rupert it would be exciting to go!
