Love & Fonts


In combining the best elements of romance novels and typographic criticism, I could have made this comic much, much racier: "She felt the oblique, sinuous curves of his letterform. Their passion was legible. But could it ever be justified?"  At least I didn't stoop to making fun of Comic Sans.

Haven said...

Ahahaha, loves it.

Embarassingly enough, I do obsess over fonts and what font is perfect for what medium. ::headdesk::

Comic Sans was her high school fling but unlike her, he couldn't move on.

I hope this doesn't offend you but...

The smut that potentially could have been your comic is a lot better than the comic you have in this post.

But that's forgetting the fact that this comic is just pure GENIUS

Good job as always

Leila said...

But i agree with other people here as well, comic sans is like a "high school fling." superficially appealing/attractive at first, but vulgarian and amateurish within. investing more towards it only reflects a lack of insight and self-respect.

Hahaha font puns...killer. Me and my brother play a game where we try to recognize fonts as we drive by them. but shh don't let anyone know we're freaks.

Leila: True.

Everyone: My current favorite is "Jokerman." Not only is it a hilariously awful MS Word font, it's a hilariously awesome '80s Bob Dylan song.
