So. Design deity Andy Budd (who's just plain cool) started this whole "Desert Island Fonts" thing... and I could have just ignored the meme, but I love fonts... love love love them. There's just something so magical about how the curve of an "a" or the swoosh of a "Q" can convey so much.
At any rate, here's are my "six fonts I'd use if I could only own six"... and like almost everyone else, I'm referring to font families which can actually include dozens of typefaces. But who's keeping score, right?

Of course, this isn't really fair. I have 1500 fonts in my library, and choosing just six comes down to my choosing what would get me the most mileage... without regard to the 20 or so fonts whose attack I find wholly enchanting — if only _because_ they can't be used so widely.
