A Slow Book Day

Haven't found anything worth posting today, but I did see this last night at a local Borders. Also briefly discussed over at Design Observer. Very cool:

"This clever and unique new slipcased guide contains 226 fonts from all the major type libraries in well over 1,000 typefaces. The selection ranges from classic fonts to new- comers, from Baskerville, Bodoni, and Jansen to Auto, Farnham Text, and Ginger. Each entry features special characters and includes a passage of dummy text that allows designers to assess the overall appearance and characteristic style of a font. Fonts are grouped in categories: Serif, Slab Serif, Sans Serif, Script, Black Letter and Display."
