Have you ever noticed how menus in fancy restaurants are always set in Papyrus? my daughter asked me a year ago. Until then I had not paid much attention to typefaces. But suddenly I saw them everywhere. The most egregious font violations--such as Sans Serif on hospital donation bins--were especially hard to take.
Simon Garfield's new book Just My Type, is a fun look at the history of fonts. I reviewed the breezy book for Bookbrowse.
