    I have really been getting into different typefaces over the last 6-8 months, and have kind of become a semi-knowledgeable dork on the subject (much to chagrin of my fiance)... I really like Neutraface #2 right now, especially the text version. [​IMG] I like Berthold Akzidenz-Grotesk a lot and wish I could afford to get it...

    Both very good fonts and two of my favorites as well. Akzidenz is a hundred plus years old, but still looks great. Kind of the forerunner of all the 20C sans-serifs.

    Yeah, my roommate was a graphic designer at Gallup for about 4 years and their logo is Akzidenz, so I have really grown to appreciate it!

    I use Caslon Pro combined with Gotham or Verlag for most documents. A great combination of old and new.

    Say it ain't so!

    Verlag and Caslon Pro are solid...

    I kind of like Helvetica myself, although I'm reluctant to use it much because of document sharing/email where others may not have Helv loaded. I'll look up some of the other fonts you gents mentioned.

    I really like Scala, but I don't want to pay $730 for it...

    Very nice font. You can find it all over the place for free.
