Periodic Font Table


For long-time printer industry players like me and I am guessing, many of my readers, the developed acquaintance with the world of typefaces has been a beneficial by-product. Knowing the history and purpose behind many of the fonts we've come to know and love adds color and interest to the business.

Kudos to design firm Squidspot for coming up with the table, and thanks Lifehacker for the explanatory blog post, "Periodic Table of Typefaces Schools You on Fonts". And thanks for @PrinterNews and their tweet sending me to the post.

And check out the comments below the blog post at Lifehacker -- pity the poor soul who asked about Arial and its absence!
