I'm a sucker for letters that imply a third dimension, like Excoffon's "Calypso." Dig this fantastic Tuscan T!
A lovely "Ø." Scandinavian friends, is there a morphological name for this? (@clauseggers, I'm looking at you)
Curious to learn more about Wagon, whose programming books look quite lovely:
Nice: two different reductivist interpretations of the ogonek accent, on this book cover.
Listening to Jonathan Hoefler talk about typefaces is like watching a magician show you how all of his tricks are done. Fascinating. #aeadc

Ahoy #aeadc — thanks for coming! Here's the video I mentioned, @brandondurham using chromatic fonts in CSS:
At #aneventapart? Pay attention to what @whitneyhess is saying about Presence. It's a life-changer.
Final slide is done, with a cool 84 minutes to spare… Looking forward to @whitneyhess's talk, and then I'll see you on stage.

.@zeldman on accessibility, and people who don't care about blind users: "Google is the biggest blind user on the internet." #aneventapart
More from @zeldman: "Like typeface design… web design is the creation of an environment that facilitates human activity." Spot on.
Great response by @zeldman to "the web hasn't produced an ___ as good as ___", is "Architecture has not produced a movie like The Godfather"
I love that @zeldman just name-checked Debabelizer at @aneventapart.
Idea: "Tarmac Life," a lifestyle magazine/website/podcast for people who are currently 17th in line to depart
I wonder how many other folks heading to @aneventapart are here with me waiting on the tarmac at JFK... #aJetApart
Now here's something about which I suspect feelings run deep: what's your favorite mechanical pencil?
"Built for the sea. Designed for the air." Etc.
Other rejected phrases include "Built for humans. Designed for cats."

I'll be talking about webfonts at @aneventapart in DC next week. Come say hello!…
Indeed, @bzigterman: It's from the Barnhart Bros. & Spindler type specimen book "25-A" of 1920.
