Finally a visually more exciting alternative to the forever boring (though) clickable list of fonts: the Periodic Table of Typefaces. It covers a number of major fonts and includes information about the family and classification of each, the designer, the year the font was designed, and a ranking as cribbed from a number of internet sources. Pity though it’s only informative rather than interactive; maybe one day some design inspired hacker might find some spare time to make the visual stimulation functionally exciting.
