So as not to hijack Ralf's thread, I decided to start a new one.
I'd like to know everyone's impressions on why Mrs. Eaves has become such a very popular font in such a short time and whether or not it maybe just a temporary phase.
Personally, I think the charm of Mrs. Eaves is the fact that it looks modern, but has such a wonderful antique feel to it. Combined with the extra ligatures and it's lovely italic, Mrs. Eaves can be quite whimsical without being very "scripty" or novelty.
I'd like to think that it will be around for a long time, though I'm not sure if it will ever take a place alongside the big classics such as Garamond and Caslon.
