  • Gentium (Victor Gaultney).
  • Finnegan (Jürgen Weltin).
  • Swift (Gerard Unger).
  • Palatino (Hermann Zapf).
  • Optima Nova (Hermann Zapf).
  • Frutiger Next (Linotype).
  • Many fonts from Psy/Ops, in particular Perceval (Michel Valois), Raykjavik (Stefan Kjartansson and Rodrigo Xavier Cavazos), Aperto (Paul Veres), Serus (Todd Masui), Leyden (Lars Bergquist), Aquamarine (Gábor Kóthay), and Eidetic Modern and Neo (Rodrigo Xavier Cavazos).
  • Mrs. Eaves (Zuzana Licko).
  • Democratica (Miles Newlyn).

Jakob, another reader, adds to this list some basic text fonts:
  • All fonts from Storm Type Foundry.
  • From The Foundry: Foundry Sans, Sterling, Monoline, Gridnik.
  • Jigsaw (Typotheque).
  • Rayuela (Pampa Type).
  • Stainless (Font Bureau).

  • From Underware, Dolly, and the upcoming "Stool".
  • Today Sans or its clone, Cronos.
The interesting discussion ends with yet another reader adding some sans typefaces (Fago C, Foundry Form Sans, FF DIN, Triplex) and some serif typefaces (Corporate A, Foundry Form Serif), The Antiqua B, Sauna).
