Beautiful web type — the best typefaces from the Google web fonts directory.

It follows from this that benefits are badly invested, and become bad debts: in these cases it is too late to complain of their not being returned, for they were thrown away when we bestowed them. Nor need we wonder that while the greatest vices are common, none is more common than ingratitude: for this I see is brought about by various causes. The first of these is, that we do not choose worthy persons upon whom to bestow our bounty, but although when we are about to lend money we first make a careful enquiry into the means and habits of life of our debtor, and avoid sowing seed in a worn-out or unfruitful soil, yet without any discrimination we scatter our benefits at random rather than bestow them.

Tout le monde se souvient bien entendu de son célèbre J'Accuse parue dans le Figaro du 13 janvier 1898. Mais si vous voulez revivre cette affaire Dreyfus, rien de tel que de vous replonger dans le timeline édité par la Emile Zola Society. Je me suis plus particulièrement attaché à vous montrer ces quelques affiches de l'époque qui témoignent de plusieurs choses. Typographie Foisonnante: Chacune des affiches laisse paraître l'utilisation de nombreux caractères sauf peut-être celle de NANA ci-dessous mais il s'agit là certainement d'un teasing et non d'une affiche complète. Expressivité graphique: Chaque ligne, chaque mot typographié par le peintre en lettre devait hurler un message, un sens.
