Everything you ever wanted to know about fonts

I really don’t know a lot about fonts, and rarely venture beyond Times New Roman, Georgia, and Arial, but I’ve always found the subject fascinating (and I do enjoy playing around with them in MS Word from time to time).  Anyway, I therefore loved this video on “The History of Typography” (in stop-motion animation, no less).

 

Also, a great interview with the creator in the Atlantic.
