With the direction the internet is heading today, this combination of Star Wars and typography was bound to happen soon. And it did. Created by artist Pete Ware of 17th and Oak, these prints are a must-have for anybody - well maybe not anybody, but anybody with interests in fonts, pop culture and space.
Typography lovers who own iPads or iPhones will be ecstatic to learn they can download the classic Mac application FontBook, and it's only 99 cents. Users will get access to 37,000 typefaces from over 8,000 font families, making it the most comprehensive font tool around.
When I was in fourth grade, my teacher told us, under no uncertain terms, that this was the year to master our cursive writing. By December of the academic year, which had started in September, we had to have completed the full transition to all cursive all the time. This was for our own good because for the rest of our lives, we would need to write in script. Well, you can file that whole whopper under 'Lies My Teacher Told Me' because not only was it not true, but people now look at me strangely if I do write in script. Thanks for nothing, Mr. Schultz.

Hermann Zapf (born November 8, 1918) is a German typeface designer who lives in Darmstadt, Germany. He is married to calligrapher and typeface designer Gudrun Zapf von Hesse.
Zapf's work, which includes Palatino and Optima, has been widely copied, often against his will. The best known example may be Monotype's Book Antiqua, which shipped with Microsoft Office and was widely considered a "knockoff" of Palatino. In 1993, Zapf resigned from ATypI (Association Typographique Internationale) over what he viewed as its hypocritical attitude toward unauthorized copying by prominent ATypI members. via Wikipedia
