Yeah, that's an unexpected font to use for the album. I'd disagree, I think a cursive font suits her more. I have to admit, I really love Regina's signature, the ♡ respekt in cursive is positive and relatively egoless and sweetly short. I still think Courier seems like a childish and archaic font to record telegraphs. Every other website have a set preference for Helvetica/Arial/Verdana (except curiously WSJ.com uses Tahoma and NYTimes.com uses Georgia).

Sans serif is def really hip right now. It seems to be in the vogue as a throwaway from the authoritarian CAPS in the corporate world, to make companies look friendlier to the younger generation, and I don't mind the trend among the design community. I am making a poster board for a semester project (on the future of farming being urban/indoors/vertical). Seeing that all the other posters look deathly dull, I think I'm going to have the title in my poster lowercase and green. Futura and Century Gothic seem the sexiest choices. I also like the new fonts Microsoft has too: Calibri, Corbel, and the serif Cambria.

When I did newspaper in high school, I used Garamoud for the header, Georgia for headlines, Franklin Gothic for the by-line and photo credits and description, and a serif font for the body text to make the newspaper more credible. Yay for typography geeks.
