I confess. I love fonts. I even have a t-shirt that reads “Times New Roman” across the front, and that’s it. AND it’s written in Times New Roman! I have a tendency to use a the same font for a really long period of time on everything I type. My old standby is Lucida Sans. And it excited me to know that Switzerland’s official name in Latin is Confoederatio Helvetica.
I have an entire lecture that probably bores my students to tears because it’s all about typefaces and fonts. (Geek Info: there is actually a difference between a typeface and a font but we tend to use the term font more often because of computer usage.) Then again, I could be wrong about the boredom thing. One of my students from a couple of semesters ago sent me a link to this utterly hilarious vide0: Font Fight – http://www.collegehumor.com/video:1908292
Turns out that it is the sequel to Font Conference -http://www.collegehumor.com/video:1823766.
