There's an interesting article in the New York Times regarding typefaces and the frustration of their transfer to the computer. I think it's so interesting that typefaces appear so differently digitally than in print. In any event, the article is pretty good (and short) so if typography remotely interests you, check it out.
I'd also like to give a shout-out to my roommate Kate who used the word 'typeface' for the first time last night. I'm so honored.
