      I suppose this might go here in this thread, I don't really want to start another one.

      If anyone is interested I recently interviewed Ray Cruz, the type designer who designed the typeface, Spirit, for the United States Postal Service and many other noteworthy faces. I will be posting one question a day for the next several days. Enjoy.

            As far as a font manager I have been using "The Font Thing". I don't know that it would be any better than the manager you mentioned.

            Also, were you maybe thinking of tying in with anything having to do with font creation software?

                  would be really helpful (to me esp.), if you guys could list essential books. That seems to be missing for me anyway. Some sort of Bible of Typogrphy would be awesome, if it were to be listed.

                  Dankeschön in advance ;-)

                        Robert Bringhurst "The Elements of Typographic Style" is pretty much the Bible when it comes to typography. In the years since it was published there have been doubts about some of his methodology but it is a really strong foundational text on typography.

                        The book by Spiekermann mentioned above is OK, nothing great.

                        You might want to study the grid, which has also been debunked in the years since it was invented, but nonetheless it is also strong foundational material.

                        And for little details it is hard to beat "The Chicago Manual of Style". Want to know how to do nested quotation marks? The answer is there.

                            Always read the EULA. While some fonts are free for personal use, you may have to pay if you use them to professionally design something for yourself or someone else.

                              The other problem with free fonts is they are often not worth the price you paid for them.
