I have an extra book still in it's original packaging of Jodorowsky's comics from the 60s-early 70s. Most of the themes visited in his movies first came via his comics. Unfortunately, since I'm low on cash, and they're hard to come by, I'll only part w/ it for serious collectors money. (yes, it's all in espanol).

Great question C$, I was just at the used bookstore during lunch looking over typography books in order to get familiar with it for an exhibit I'm working on. But more imprtantly, how do you know what font suits you the best? I'm sick of Times Roman 11. Is their a font quiz?

If Cambria is what I remember, it's a weird modern semi-serif, yeh? even-thickness, more display than text....? So if cambria is the display/hed font, something with much less personality for text; either a totally conservative serif book or a totally medicinal sans, for contrast...? And yeh, what adrian said. "Bland" is another way of saying "highly readable" ... often that's enough to win..

@ Cheri Pi: I'm so SICK of "Cambria/Calibri"! Check out "Georgia" and 'Baskerville". They both make good "everyday" fonts and have a great deal more class and style than "C/C". "Futura" and "Engravers MT" make interesting title fonts, depending on the application. Just some suggestions.

P-90, I'll check 'em out! Calibri is our default font at work but I personalize all my documents. Youwouldn't believe it but htere are some people here that actually use comic sans! Not only is it a font, but apparently a personality disorder too. who does that???

  4:28pm
P-90:

One angle on "fonts and the 1980's": it was a period when corporations increasingly adopted specific (and sometimes proprietary) fonts for all their advertising and "branding." ex: Apple used its own variant of "Garamomd" in ads, on packaging, etc. in the early 80's, then switched to an "exclusive" variant of "Myriad"...
The 80's saw a definite increase in emphasis by corporations on adopting "house" fonts to heighten "brand recognition".

I would always choose Helvetica over Arial, they're similar. Helvetica's a bit cliched by now, but as I said above, Arial seems like just an attempt at an "updated" Helvetica-style font. Helvetica looks great on PowerPoints too.
