The best fonts list includes some of my favorite typefaces. I love using Adobe [[Caslon]] Pro—it must be Pro and you have to make use of the OpenType features. Italic Swash is my favorite. Adobe [[Garamond]] Pro and Minion Pro too. They just have a ton of variants and options. I think you can milk any font created by [[Adrian Frutiger]]. They're versatile. I don't get tired of them. ([[Avenir]], [[Univers]] and [[Frutiger]] of course. [[Myriad (typeface)|Myriad]] is the [[san serif]] alternative for the versatile [[serif]] fonts I went on and on about a sentence or two ago. Sorry fourth wall. [[Helvetica]] is overused, I'm over it. That's just for my designs, you use it if you want. The modern push is toward the san serifs, so I like to try to make serifs seem modern. I don't know if there's any success in it.
