I have an extra book still in it's original packaging of Jodorowsky's comics from the 60s-early 70s. Most of the themes visited in his movies first came via his comics. Unfortunately, since I'm low on cash, and they're hard to come by, I'll only part w/ it for serious collectors money. (yes, it's all in espanol).

the default Microsoft Word theme uses Cambria for the headers and Calibri for the body text.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/14/14 3:58pm Cheri Pi:

Great question C$, I was just at the used bookstore during lunch looking over typography books in order to get familiar with it for an exhibit I'm working on. But more imprtantly, how do you know what font suits you the best? I'm sick of Times Roman 11. Is their a font quiz?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/14/14 3:59pm Cheri Pi:

*there* [dammnit]
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/14/14 3:59pm Cecile:

I still love Times Roman, but I hardly use it at work.

@cecile - that cambria/calibri combo is what i use all the time - "Bland" is the correct word for it - but everything I'm doing is on excel - bland is the order of the day on that medium

I want this voice in my head at all times.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/14/14 4:03pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

If Cambria is what I remember, it's a weird modern semi-serif, yeh? even-thickness, more display than text....? So if cambria is the display/hed font, something with much less personality for text; either a totally conservative serif book or a totally medicinal sans, for contrast...? And yeh, what adrian said. "Bland" is another way of saying "highly readable" ... often that's enough to win..
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/14/14 4:04pm DCE:

  Thu. 8/14/14 4:07pm P-90:

@ Cheri Pi: I'm so SICK of "Cambria/Calibri"! Check out "Georgia" and 'Baskerville". They both make good "everyday" fonts and have a great deal more class and style than "C/C". "Futura" and "Engravers MT" make interesting title fonts, depending on the application. Just some suggestions.
Avatar Thu. 8/14/14 4:08pm Milson:

Calibri has grown on me... I feel a strong dislike for Arial (the agency-wide preference)... I feel like Arial is the talking purple dinosaur of fonts... is it just me?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/14/14 4:09pm DCE:

I don't feel strongly about most fonts but fuck you Arial you SUCK.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/14/14 4:09pm Cecile:

P-90, I love Georgia and Baskerville together, but this is such a utlitarian project I could write it on paper towels and it owuld be fine. I'm just making it a little nicer so it will stand out on the bulletin board.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/14/14 4:10pm Cheri Pi:

P-90, I'll check 'em out! Calibri is our default font at work but I personalize all my documents. Youwouldn't believe it but htere are some people here that actually use comic sans! Not only is it a font, but apparently a personality disorder too. who does that???
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/14/14 4:10pm Cheri Pi:

These are the same people who use Explorer as their default browser.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/14/14 4:11pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

99% of the time, fonts with "personality" are a terrible idea.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/14/14 4:11pm Cecile:

Arial is just bad. I'd use geneva before I use that again.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/14/14 4:12pm Cheri Pi:

So my exhibit is about typography / graphic design of the 80's, not my area (except for the 80's) AT ALL. any hints on where to start understanding what I'm looking at?
  Thu. 8/14/14 4:13pm P-90:

"Arial" is like the updated, hipsterized version of the venerable "Helvetica."

@Cheri: BEWARE anyone who thinks it's cute to circulate memos or post notices in "Comic Sans"! It's a classic "warning sign" that something is WRONG.

This tabluzz is far-frikkin-out. Twelve thumbs up.
  Thu. 8/14/14 4:28pm P-90:

One angle on "fonts and the 1980's": it was a period when corporations increasingly adopted specific (and sometimes proprietary) fonts for all their advertising and "branding." ex: Apple used its own variant of "Garamomd" in ads, on packaging, etc. in the early 80's, then switched to an "exclusive" variant of "Myriad"...
The 80's saw a definite increase in emphasis by corporations on adopting "house" fonts to heighten "brand recognition".

You should always choose a font that is not available to most of your authors, who submit in Word, especially when you need to provide them with a precise length estimate.

  Thu. 8/14/14 4:53pm P-90:

I would always choose Helvetica over Arial, they're similar. Helvetica's a bit cliched by now, but as I said above, Arial seems like just an attempt at an "updated" Helvetica-style font. Helvetica looks great on PowerPoints too.

  Thu. 8/14/14 4:56pm P-90:

Arial is also a "big" font, docs in Arial will typically take up more page space than most other fonts. Maybe corporate types like it partlybecause it makes everyone look a little more long-winded and "productive."

I use Rotring Art Pens to death. They might be my favorite writing/drawing instrument ever.

@Milson:(((((((hug)))))))
  Thu. 8/14/14 5:06pm JEDD X:

Oh, and a very BEAUTIFUL show BTW!!!!!!!!
  Thu. 8/14/14 5:07pm P-90:

OK, now I'm gonna have to try Rotring too. I take a lot of notes but draw very little; is there a particular model you'd recommend?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/14/14 5:07pm Cecile:

Milson, i have been there. hang in there.
  Thu. 8/14/14 5:09pm P-90:

@Milson: And maybe the co-worker next to you is in the same boat, might wanna remember that the next time you get the urge to staple his/her face. Just sayin'.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/14/14 5:09pm Cecile:

There is only one. A lot of stores don't have them. They are an old school fountain pen. I like the EF and M pens. Those are the tips.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/14/14 5:10pm Cecile:

Amazon usually has them.
  Thu. 8/14/14 5:10pm Dean:

Love, love, love Polwechsel. John Butcher cubed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/14/14 5:11pm Fabio:

Thanks Ken.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/14/14 5:15pm Chris from DC:

Polweschel would be a good name for a font.
  Thu. 8/14/14 5:16pm P-90:

@Cecile: Thanks, I've been thinking about going back to a good affordable fountain pen. I see the 4 nib sizes, is M medium and EF extra-fine?
Also: I trust you've never had one leak in your pocket or bag?
Avatar Thu. 8/14/14 5:17pm Milson:

Thanks for the uplifting words everyone... it's just so overwhelming... you know? When I crash, I crash so hard. If I'm going to make this a positive experience, I gotta stop doing so much blow before work...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/14/14 5:17pm Cecile:

Exactly. I haven't had one leak in my bag. Although one I had would get ink on my fingers - the tip was a little weird. The rest have been just fine.
  Thu. 8/14/14 5:18pm Dean:

Polwechsel is a font ... of sublime noise.
  Thu. 8/14/14 5:19pm P-90:

@ Milson: Also: be sure and keep plenty of small, protein-rich snacks around, low blood sugar makes everything worse.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/14/14 5:19pm adrian in mpls:

@Milson - sorry about work -- having been in that place so often, i know how very very crappy it feels
  Thu. 8/14/14 5:20pm P-90:

And try saving the blow for Happy Hour, after work is done...

I just got some oatmeal cookies from the vending machine to fight low blood sugar and they were gross.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/14/14 5:24pm Cecile:

I ate a bunch of Starburst. I just have to make until 5. Busride don't care if I have low bloodsugar.
  Thu. 8/14/14 5:24pm P-90:

@ Cecile: One more question: what kind of ink do you use in them there Rotring Artpens?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/14/14 5:25pm Mike East:

I have a good granola bar for the busride just in case. I gotta make it here til 7.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/14/14 5:26pm Cecile:

You can use the pre-done cartridges (they come iwth a bunch), or you can get a refillable one and fill it iwth a good India ink.
  Thu. 8/14/14 5:26pm P-90:

Starburst are like crack! If I open a package I can't stop 'til they're all gone...
Avatar Thu. 8/14/14 5:26pm Milson:

Mine lasted over a week, on and off.

The official office snack area is the credenza outside my office door. I'm victimized by whatever crap they lay out for each other.

@ Carmichael: Do people gather at the credenza and yak it up right outside your door?

Thanks for the tunes, Fabio! Everyone, have a wonderful evening! Always a pleasure!
  Thu. 8/14/14 5:54pm P-90:

The part of the show where Clay raps with Fabio should be called "The Pigeonhole".
  Thu. 8/14/14 5:56pm Dean:

John Adams wrote "Shaker Loops." Does that make him a mover?
