Creative Characters & Rising Stars

I stumbled upon this site, http://new.myfonts.com/newsletters, where every month they feature a font creator in their Creative Characters newsletter... for type diehards this is like the old VH1 "Behind the Music" segments except on fonts. Font creators both dead and alive are highlighted, including gill sans creator Eric Gill who was said to be "...a man in love with letters and life." That's deep.

The site's Rising Star section highlights different fonts, which is fun to look through. I liked the elegant look of the Mussica font in this month's (October 2009) issue.
