Sexy Fonts


For reasons I won't go into here, I've been sprending much too much of my spare, creative time trying to decide what is the sexiest font.

Verdana is OK but I need something rounder, more curvacious.


Arial is too common place, too run of the mill.


Georgia is not even in the running.


Lucida Grande doesn't seem much different.


Trebuchet sounds nicer than it looks.


webdings is unreadble.


Any suggestions from the standard MS list?


There's a fascinating article in the latest issue of Mslexia on art books, particularly poetry.

I love Garamond too. And Verdana. Quite partial to Courier New as well - nice and old school!

Hmmm, Dear Typeface - I'm sorry, I do love you - just not in that way. ;->

I believe that English gothic fonts really can fit. Verdana is possible as well.
