Do you know that the world-famous Helvetica was based on a late 19th century typeface model? That Arial is Helvetica’s bastard child, commissioned to avoid paying licensing fees? That John Baskerville, whose typeface our founding father, Benjamin Franklin adores, kept a lifelong mistress?

Join me as I take you through the interesting minutiae behind fonts we love, fonts we love to hate, and the men and women who stood behind their design.
