A question on text fonts from: Beth Wolterman | Ida County Courier

BETH SENDS ED A QUICK QUESTION…and Ed responds like the smart aleck he is.

Here’s the email exchange:

FROM BETH:

‘You mentioned there are better copy fonts than Times for a weekly. I agree. Give me your top five to consider.’

FROM ED:

Beth:

Here are my top five fonts for text:
1. Nimrod.
2. Nimrod.
3. Nimrod.
4. Nimrod.
5. Nimrod.
OK…now that the point is made…
Here are my top five fonts for text:
1. Nimrod.
2. Utopia.
3. Georgia.
4. Cheltenham
5. Kepler.

So you can take a look for yourself, Ed’s top five follow. Oh…and the top five tend to change from time to time.

Except for Nimrod. That’s a constant.
