Greetings Fellow FNs

Hello all of you out there who, like me, love, nay crave, fonts and like to learn about them. Yes, I must admit it, I am a font nerd.

I have much to learn from Corax about this arcane yet interesting realm, such as, is it true that Jacques Derrida changed from Helvetica to Bembo in his last writings, and thus altered the alterity of his writing?

Or, since Socrates did not write anything, what font *would* he have used if he had written rather than pled with Euthyphro?

Seriously though, this topic has fascinated me, but I have much to learn. I am not even sure where the word "font" came from, so perhaps I must now consult the font of fonts...
