Hello. My name is Nancy, and I have a confession to make.
I’m a font nerd. A lettering geek. A typophile. (This last term could be interpreted as someone who enjoys typos, which is just plain wrong.)
Basically, I’ll pay special attention to what kind of font was used when I look at posters, movie credits, books, and more.
So imagine by utter delight when I was flipping through Percy Jackson and the Olympians #2: The Sea of Monsters and happened to see:
“This book is set in 13-point Centaur MT.”
Teeheeeheeee! Get it? The font is Centaur, just like Chiron! I thought it was pretty ingenious and immediately told Karen. Her response was a facial expression like this:
Meaning, she was not impressed.
Nancy gets that look from Karen a lot.
