    Forget Comic Sans MS, I personally enjoy Zebrawood Regular.

    Haha! That is phat! I feel like I’m at the circus! Or maybe a Mark Twain riverboat somewhere in Mississippi. Nice one…

  3. Wanna be an even bigger dork? Read The Cheese Monkeys by Chip Kidd. Wonderful graphic designer fiction :D

    From the back cover: “This story about growing up and finding your calling is funny and, almost despite itself, moving. Here the big ideas – about growing, working, loving – are all inside.

    Looks interesting to say the least. Thanks Jason…I think :)

  5. It’s actually very good. The book itself even becomes a design piece, starting out set in one font, then changing halfway through (after our protagonist learns a bit). The tone was beautiful and set me right back at school.

    That’s awesome!

    I used to work at a place where Hobo was the new Comic Sans. <shudder

  7. Kidd didn’t just go to town on the font set in the book, the jacket cover is incredible to boot! So much going on with it, utterly amazing.
