What’s your type? Try these tests to pick the perfect font for you.

Washington Post [and free link] – See how fonts change the way you read and write….You make font choices every day. You pick type designs each time you use a word processor, read an e-book, send an email, prepare a presentation, craft a wedding invite and make an Instagram story. It might seem like just a question of style, but research reveals fonts can dramatically shape what you communicate and how you read. Fonts are “the clothes that words wear,” said early 20th-century editor Beatrice Warde. They also embody style, emotion and authority. Like a villain’s costume in a movie, they quietly tell part of the story. Microsoft recently replaced its default Office font of 15 years, Calibri, with one called Aptos that it says has a bit more “warmth.”
