When I was in university, I sent off for every type specimen sheet I could get my hands on…. Receiving the canvas bags stuffed with font supplements from T26 was certainly a highlight of my first year. Why? Well, firstly, type supplements are normally beautiful things. They didn’t necessarily make me look at type any differently, but they made me want to collect type…. [I]t’s a mindset that leads to a shallow understanding of the broader craft. You get distracted by the next beautiful typeface. You’re constantly on the search for the typeface that is just right. Font choice is not the most important decision you make when designing with type.
