Through an amazing web of links and referals I wound up at an old thread on Cameron Moll’s blog from August of last year.
The subject of the post is “Typefaces no one gets fired for using”. If you’re in the market for new fonts or some variations on some old favorites, check out all of the recommendations left by the commentors. Lots of good rec’s.
Of course, it’s almost as fun to guess what kind of project these folks must be working on to recommend some of the more “display” (i.e. outlandish) fonts.
