What the Font

Manipulate the Mean Worship the repulsive Incubate the weak For chocolate is always beneath the tongueEver thought about how fonts change the look and feel of your written page. Most of us, as I do here, stick with the font that is automatically built in to whatever program you’re using. I have to say I avoid Time New Roman like the plague. I hate it. Generally I go for something with a simpler, clean cut line, like on this page, or Century Gothic. But I do enjoy mucking about with fonts within images and so having a bank of more off the wall fonts is a must.
I was on Language Fonts the other day and decided to download some more exotic creations to add to a piece I was working on from Fonts.com. I particularly liked for their graphic quality, the Korean fonts which have, again, very clean lines, almost like mathematical equations.
The trouble is, I could spend a lot of time just selecting all my favourites.
Here are some of those – from a variety of websites:

HY Gothic Korean Medium
