Another strikingly handsome modern display serif is Connary Fagen’s Wayfinder. This slim, flared 14 font family looks dapper and refined. Even the tittle of the lowercase i is tastefully tapered.

How a typeface helped launch Apollo

In honor of the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing, Douglas Thomas gives a TED Talk on the role of Futura in the Apollo 11 mission.

Knives Out title font
