Thanks again Karen.

Thanks to others who also contributed to the typography discussion. Still
love to hear other thoughts!

I was inspired - decided to look at the topic with my non-VET Multimedia
class (where I recruit IDM'ers). They have: 1) recommended 5 free fonts they
love and I am investigating having them installed on the network. 2)
gathered examples of interesting/inspiring typography to add to a shared
class powerpoint on the topic 3) been photographing features around the
school to make their own 'photographed alphabet' poster a la

Wasn't brave enough to try the idea of making fonts from toothpaste, pasta
