So You Need a Typeface

SO YOU NEED A TYPEFACE is a project by Julian Hansen. It's an alternative way on how to choose fonts (or just be inspired) for a specific project, not just by browsing through the pages of FontBook. The list is (very loosely) based on the top 50 of the Top100 Best Schrieften by Font Shop. HOW ABOUT SOMETHING Univers Times GOT A LOT OF HEAVILY USED? NO TABLES, HAVE YOU?
