It’s gotten so I don’t even try to disguise my love of all things typographic. And yes, coming out of the font closet means I’m free of the secret shame I’d experience lusting over a particularly telling use of Futura, or a nifty graphic treatment of Garamond Condensed.
Now, College Humor has produced Font Fight – the hilarious, perfect-for Friday video that every font geek (and yes, I mean you ) will want to play over and over.
After all, what fontophile would willingly miss the long-awaited meeting of Helvetica and Arial – the latter of which stole the former’s identity so many years ago? (The hairs on my neck are standing up.)
I can’t embed it, but it’s worth the short trip to the College Humor site, where you can embrace your inner font geek.
Keep writing, Tom Chandler.
