TI is a font fiend, having great love for both the classics from Arial to Zapf Dingbats, to those insane new forms the likes of M &M/Paris keep coining. If you are passionate too about the shape, size and scale of the lettering you encounter in your everyday life then you must read Letter By Letter.
