The Typefaces of the World poster is a very pretty poster, highlighting the origin of 50 popular typefaces alphabetically, and listing the date and author.
The idea is to familiarise designers with the origin of the type, so as to be able to better use the different faces. I think a timeline element would add to this, maybe by lengthening the line accordingly.
Nikaia is a great looking angular sans-serif, with three desktop and @Font-Face weights free to download from Font Spring; regular, italic and script.
I am currently looking at putting together a cookbook for personal use of recipes from mine and other food blogs.
I had a great idea of using food icons as bullets for each recipe step which would give a clue as to the type of cooking in each step. For example, a knife for cutting, pot for boiling, pan for frying etc.
I just found DJ Kitchen Font, a free dingbat font of kitchen utensils – perfect.
LH Line1 Sans is a nice humanist-geometic sans-serif, with the thin weight free to download and use under the Open Font License.
