100 Best Typefaces of All Time

September 14, 2012

We all have our favorite fonts. I’m sure you have a list of approximately ten families of fonts that you use more often than others. The folks at FontShop polled designers and the result was a list of The 100 Best Typefaces of All Time.

Click on any of the typefaces in the list and you’ll get a detailed history on that family of fonts. If you go through each of the fonts listed, you’ll learn an awful lot about the faces you probably use on a regular basis.

After going through the list, are there any fonts you want to see ranked? Or more likely, any fonts you can’t believe made the list?

    I’m suprised that Centaur didn’t make the list.
