Nice Web Type

Nice Web Type is one place for web typography, following experiments, advancements, and best practices in typesetting web text. Handcrafted by Tim Brown, Type Manager for Adobe Typekit.

John Gruber on typography

From a Daring Fireball post entitled The Trend Against Skeuomorphic Textures and Effects in User Interface Design, two sentiments that resonated with me:

On retina displays there’s simply no reason not to use any font you want. All fonts render nicely on retina displays.

If you want to see the future of software UI design, look to the history of print design.

And in case you missed it, John was a guest on The Big Web Show last week. He talked about typesetting as an enjoyable mental puzzle, and waxed nostalgic about Quark Express (I loved it, too – Quark is where I learned to typeset).
