I did not write the “type guru” part. Thanks to HOW for assisting in the cause for typographic diversity. The writing and type samples are mine. The page layout is HOW's. An expanded version of the article with relevant links will appear on Typographica one day. In the meantime, a copy of the mag is waiting for you on the newsstand now. See some Alternatives to Common Fonts.
