Chapter 14. Typefaces in this Book

There are more than three hundred fonts, or typefaces, in this book. Now, when someone (especially a font vendor) tells you there are “a certain number” of fonts, they usually include all the variations of one font—the regular version is a font, the italic is another, the bold is another, etc. Since you are (or were) a new designer, I thought you might be interested in knowing exactly which fonts were used in this book. Most fonts are shown in 14-point type, unless otherwise noted. Have fun!
