I'd guess we probably have at least 1000 fonts on the system at work... Out of those, I'd guess I probably use about two dozen on a regular basis. One little gem keeps popping up in my magazine work recently, and that's Melior.

This is what had to say:
"...possesses a broad range of uses due to its technical and formal qualities. The overall design is based on the rectangle. Take capital O as a point of departure for appreciating this concept.
