Type Brewer

From Marek. Perhaps borrowing a bit of the name from the famous ColorBrewer (snap at right) project comes the TypeBrewer project (snap at left) to help us pick fonts on our maps. TypeBrewer is a free help tool that gives non-specialist mapmakers a chance to explore typography in a semi-structured environment. I confess I could spend some time playing with font type, spacing, density on a map of Italy.
