 A book of stories about fonts?! I'm in. Just My Type examines how Helvetica and Comic Sans took over the world, and explains why we are still influenced by type choices made more than 500 years ago. Chapter 4 asks, "Can a font make you popular?" Sure can. Times New Roman, Palatino, Gill Sans, Didot, Baskerville...twenty years ago we hardly knew them, but now we all have our favorites. So whether you're writing a letter or designing a poster, pull down that font menu and enjoy! Computers have allowed for one of the greatest creative freedoms, a privilege we could never have anticipated in the age of the typewriter.
