Hi all...I just got hold of a CD named "Best 100 Fonts of All Time" since Guternberg, as selected by their users and an international jury. The evaluation consisted exclusively of licensed or ‘commercial’ fonts. Free fonts or operating system fonts were not considered, nor were fonts integral to standard software (i.e. Arial, Verdana, etc.). Font variations, which over the centuries have been individually interpreted by various Foundries, were uniquely evaluated as a class and the best variant was entered into the main judging process. If anyone needs any font family from this list, I'd be happy to share 'em. Here's the list.
