The Fount of Fonts

There are literally thousands of different types of fonts. 1001 Free Fonts offers over a thousand fonts free for users to download. 1001 Fonts offers over two thousand fonts also for free. That is a lot of fonts.

With so many to choose from, how do you decide which font to use in each book that you publish?

Ever wonder which fonts are most commonly used in books?

The Font Feed recently compiled a list of the most popular fonts for books based on the fonts used in books that won design awards. The top five most popular fonts used in books are Minion, ITC New Baskerville, FF Scala, FF Scala Sans, and Adobe Garamond.

Personally, I am surprised that Minion was number one. On the other hand, I do rather like ITC New Baskerville.

What’s your favorite font to read?
