Periodic table of typefaces

Periodic table of typefacesHow wonderfully geeky is this?

If you are the kind of person that regularly ponders questions like: "Hmmm, which Sans-serif, Humanist font would work best here?" or "Who created the Times font?", then the Periodic Table of Typefaces is for you!

It covers a number of major fonts and includes information about the family and classification of each, the designer, the year the font was designed, and a ranking as cribbed from a number of internet sources.

So, download the hefty image (3150x2100, 1.6MB JPEG), set it as your desktop, and give your inner font geek free range.

[Thanks to Lifehacker for the tip!]
