Fonts We Actually Want

Came upon this essay from a few years ago. Fonts we really want on the iPad. I would love if Apple could make Garamond standard on the iPad. It’s long been my favorite font. I don’t care for Bodoni.

    It’s a shame that the typefaces Apple later added to iBooks aren’t available system-wide. Charter, Iowan, Athelas and Seravek are all lovely, and well-chosen for reading. I suppose it adds to the individuality of iBooks, though, and I’m happy there’s a trend towards more varied typography on iOS.

    Yeah, the way fonts are handled on iOS really bugs me.
