I probably spend too long fusing over fonts, but, I can highly recommend Adobe's Source Serif font for your ereader of choice. Clean, clear and beautiful.

I now have over 5000 #fonts. I still have about 150 to sort into my collections in Fontbase. I don't know why I bother, because I keep going back to the same handful of favorites anyway. 99.5% never see any use.

I have a sickness.

Absolutely in love with the font I just bought to use in my terminal 😍

Somehow programming feels a little more special while using it ✨

I'm experimenting with the different layout configurations available in HTML/CSS by looking at text rendering in Firefox and Chromium. The differences are wild!

We'll forgive them the last 2 rows because the "sideways" is experimental, but the centering mismatch, Firefox omitting some glyphs and Chromium picking glyphs from random fonts… what the hell.

I'm well aware that text rendering is a terrible field to work in but seeing titans fail at it like this surprises me.

- Value
- Vertical script
- Horizontal (LTR) script
- Horizontal (RTL) script
- Mixed script

- horizontal-tb
- vertical-lr
- vertical-rl
- sideways-lr
- sideways-rl

Texts for each row:
- 我家没有电脑。
- Example text
- מלל ארוך לדוגמא
- 1994年に至っては

Misc observations:
- vertical texts are centered in Chromium
- Firefox is missing glyphs such as 。 or  っ vertically
- Chromium uses different fonts for the Japanese between the kanjis and the kanas

This stuff matters for photographers or indeed any creatives with a website. You need to make sure that your website is fast & secure. Also make sure whoever builds your site uses the right tools for the job.

Wow, (over) 30 years of the PDF. I use them daily. From the linked article:

"The concept of PDF - Portable Document Format - actually began with the Camelot Project in 1990. And Camelot itself would be nothing without the very backbone of the idea, PostScript, which started all the way back in 1985, and kickstarted the desktop publishing software revolution.

Back in those days, cross-platform compatibility was a nightmare, which led Dr. John Warnock, co-founder of Adobe, to initiate that project. Its goal was simple in its concept but ambitious in its execution: create a format that would enable anyone to send any document electronically to anyone else, and that person would be able to read and even print it with its formatting perfectly preserved. us jaded computer users nearly at the end of the first quarter of the 21st century, this may sound like nothing to be excited about, but back in the 80s and 90s, which was the personal computer’s infancy, this was a big deal.

...back then, you couldn’t be sure which software someone would be using. You wouldn’t even know which fonts were installed on their machine. If you used one that wasn’t in that other computer’s repertoire, it could at best mess up your document’s formatting. To make matters worse, there was the Mac/Windows divide which was often viewed as a deal-breaker. Many remained convinced a file created on one type of computer could not be opened on another."

Please welcome the newest addition to the Mass-Driver catalogue, MD System Mono!

Designed by @lukecharsley and available today in 10 styles.

System Mono is the monospaced counterpart to our flagship workhorse grotesque, sharing the same vertical metrics as the proportional family — and the same slightly rotated contrast that gives the typeface its warm, analogue character.

I used to love #Google #Fonts. Until I realized what it meant for the #privacy of the users.

Since then I've been hosting my own #mirror of the Google Fonts binaries, but I needed a way to easily generate stylesheets that use my mirror from Google Fonts links.

I've hacked together a simple interface that achieves this:

You put the mirror URL, the "link" URL of Google Fonts, and your stylesheet is generated!

A screenshot of the website. It has a centered heading at the top that reads: "Google Fonts Mirror Interface". Under that, there is a centered description that says: "Transform Google Fonts links to a CSS from a Google Fonts binary mirror. Created by Sofía Aritz."

Under the heading, there are two inputs: one for the mirror URL and other for the Google Fonts URL. Under the inputs, there is a button that reads: "Transform". The inputs are on top of each other.

Under the input section, there is a darker section with the generated stylesheet and a button that reads: "Copy code". The stylesheet uses the "font-face" directive to declare the fonts.

The background color of the website is purple and the buttons are pink. The buttons do not have much rounding. The font used in the website is rounded.

i think the octopus design is my favorite. i guess that's more of a logo than a font, but STILL. it's too gorgeous to pass up. that one is from a book called "early chinese graphics" published by octopus press out of london.

text that says "dennison" in white on a blue background.
text that says "octopus" in white on a blue background. the "octopus" text is a logo design where the letters of the words are the tentacles of an octopus.
text that reads "inheritance" in big capital latters and underneath that, additional text that reads "natural treasures of the united states"
text that reads "with you" in white on a black and gold background.
