Perhaps the most difficult part in compiling this list is not what to include, but what to leave out. There are, then, many other typefaces that should be in this list, but aren’t. Perhaps some of your favourites from 2009 coincide with mine; perhaps they don’t — I’d love to hear about them in the comments below. Without further ado:

Trilby

by David Jonathan Ross

Trilby from Font BureauWho: David Jonathan Ross; Where: Boston; Foundry: Font Bureau; Other types: Manicotti; Climax.

Out of the clumsiness and inelegance of the Egyptians and Fat Faces, came, in 1845, the Clarendon. It toned down some of the extremes and the gargantuan slab serifs, introducing a little modesty; in the process making it suitable for settings beyond gaudy display.
