The Periodic Table of Typefaces

I always default to Times Roman. With this Periodic Table of Typefaces I can see what I am missing. The designer firm Squidspot made this. (via Lisa Gold: Research Maven)

Ooooh. Love it. But I am totally a font geek; I used to be a calligrapher and even did a little bit of typesetting. I love Garamond, Canson...sigh.

But I do think it's best to stick with Times New Roman for manuscripts and sending stuff out. The fancier stuff feels really pretentious to me, and should only be used (in my not so humble opinion) in published works.
