Take Control of Fonts in Snow Leopard, by Sharon Zardetto, covers all you need to know about using and managing fonts on the Mac.
Topics range from font location to installation and organization, dissolving much of the confusion designers encounter when activating and accessing their fonts. It explains Apple’s multiple font locations, and the special issues in Adobe and Microsoft products.
