For their list of “The 100 Best Typefaces of All Time”, FontShop looked at commercial fonts and scored them on both objective and subjective criteria, including sales figures, historical significance, and aesthetic quality.
The resulting online list gives a plethora of information about each listed font, such as well-known examples of the font in use, historical information, mechanical specs and oddities, and links to purchase the font.
