Are you my type?

I love words. I love words singularly and I love words strung together into beautiful sentences, paragraphs, and pages. I love their sound, their feel as you say them, and their look. I read voraciously and have a bit of an issue with acquiring books. When I was little I wanted to be the person who deciphered the ancient Cretan language Linear A (no one has definitively done it yet, so I still have time.)

Emotional, Understated, Traditional, Relaxed.

So I have a fondness for fonts and when I heard about a site that can delve into your personality and find out what ‘type’ you are I was tickled pink and had to try it. At first I was a bit disappointed, I thought Plastica was a bit severe. But now I am quite fond of Plastica; the embossed relief has a supportive elegance. The ‘j’ is gorgeous.

Plastica: a san serif font designed by Herbert Post in 1932. I can’t seem to find much out about him or Plastica (except that it is now called Umbra) on the web. More investigation is needed.

What type are you?

    Well he said I was Expanded Antique but I am most definitely a Garamond or Palatino
