Via Digital Web’s News page, I found the Fontscape - typeface directory. It’s the most browsable listing of typefaces that I’ve seen. Fontscape is educational too if you’re under the impression that there are two kinds of fonts—serif and sans serif.

I think I’ve managed to learn a little bit about typography over the last several years. However, I still demonstrate my ignorance by doing things like using “font” and “typeface” interchangeably (see exhibit A above).

A few useful sites include the Linotype Library FontIdentifier, and Will Harris’s list of what typefaces “work well together.”

Joe Gillespie’s pixel fonts are lovely and designed especially for web graphics that require small type. His site includes some interesting articles and editorials as well.
