New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
came across this interesting article on an Interaction Design blog tonight. The just of it is that good typography leads to better problem solving skills ~ and even better: ligatures lead to greater happiness.
Now we typophiles may may go, "But of course." But now we have the scientific proof to back up our claims :)
It's worth noting that the article is over a year old, so new research probably indicates that ligatures cause cancer or something like that.
