I love fonts, and was just this morning extolling the pleasures to be had from appreciating the fact that every little change in lettering changes the implicit meaning communicated by a text. That this is so is obvious, of course. But ... when you stop and think about it, it's sort of amazing that humans are such that the presence or absence of a serif can change everything. Being able to think symbolically is, well, a little astonishing. Anyway, I'm curious to hear others' favorite fonts, if there are any Others around. Also ones for which you have disdain or otherwise disapprove.
