每个平面设计师应该拥有21种字体

+$Massimo Vignelli, renowned Italian designer who created the classic American Airlines logo, once said that designers use far too many fonts. There are a few classics that Vignelli has put his stamp of approval on, like Garamond, Bodoni, Helvetica, Univers, Futura, Caslon and Baskerville – between them spanning three centuries of type design history. And most designers would agree that all of the above are timeless, albeit well-worn classics.

+$But what about those times when you need something a bit different? Sometimes the ubiquitous serifs of Times New Roman just don't quite match your vision. We've put together a selection of top fonts that, although often overlooked, should be in your toolkit. For a more exhaustive list, check out our pick of免费字体+$, for every font you'll ever need while on a budget.

+$Our list is split into display fonts, serif fonts, sans serif fonts and slab serif fonts to help you find the font you need. We'll start with display fonts...
