my favorite typefaces

What's a typeface? A typeface is designed by a type designer and refer to the form, figure, and style of letterforms. For example, Garamond is a typeface designed by a font designed named Claude Garamond. Fonts refer to the printing of typefaces, often developed by font foundries (and sometimes the designer is the foundry). Foundries refer to typefaces and develop new fonts for the purpose of print or web.
Below is a list of my favorite typefaces:

  • Baskerville
  • Garamond
  • Calluna
  • MrsEaves
  • Clarendon
  • Incognito
  • Trade Gothic
  • Avenir
  • Gotham

  • Engravers Gothic
  • Bickham Script
  • Feel Script
