In Response to Taboo's Thread...
Didn't want to hijack, but Taboo's story about the sans/ serif font reminded me of this.
A few months ago an author called saying he'd received his copies of his book and he was unhappy with the font, could we change it?
Um, no. We just printed 1,500 copies. Besides, you saw two sets of page proofs before it got sent to print. Did you think we were using a stand in font for those, until we unveiled the main event font, the Queen of Fonts, the Uber Font, the font we only put in the books just before we print them in case they loose their fonty essence?
And the font that so troubled him? Bembo. The font used for approximately 70% of all books published. Argh. What a nutmuffin.
