anatomy of a letter

I admit it. I’m a font geek. Just recently was trying to explain a logo to someone, specifically a unilateral adnate on a reflexive serif, but it’s a visual medium design. Luckily there’s a page of a book about fonts readily handy to send along. Sharing is caring. So next time you’re out looking at a menu, and they’re using say Garamond, wondering if that alternate Q in use has a swash or not, you’ll be able to tell your friends knowingly it is; and your friend will look at you like you’re crazy.
