Check out Font Shop's predictions for the year in type. See their list here: http://www.fontshop.com/blog/?cat=76
Personally, I think my new favorite is Jeeves Light. See it here: http://www.fonts.com/FindFonts/Detail.htm?pid=4651900&/cgi-bin/MsmGo.exe?grab_id=0&page_id=20210&query=JEEVES&SCOPE=Fonts

As a lover of letterpress, I decided to create this table. After buying some lots of type (one with three ligatures!) and getting a drawer I started putting this together. There are a few different typefaces here and the patina of the type is gorgeous. These letters are not adhered in any way so they can be removed if necessary. My husband cut the glass that sets over the entire case. Needing a base for the table I turned to a furniture case that my father had given me that came from a shop in central Indiana.
