I love fonts. You can say I’m obsessed with collecting them all. It’s no secret to those who know me. You’re Just My Type is a new feature where I showcase the fonts I absolutely adore and use. And hopefully, you will love the fonts I pick.

Need a match? Forget those handy lighters. It’s all about striking a match against a coarse surface to get that fire going! I give you a Matchbook!
What it makes me think of: matches (obviously) and futuristic-ness (whatever that means). I can make a long list of what I associate with it, but I think that’s mainly because of the name. I like the narrowness of the letters. It’s very modern. Everything about it remind me of matches. Ha!

Two things Mathilde remind me of: A Very Long Engagement film and how much I wish I remembered the French I learned in high school. Ooh la la!
There is something awfully familiar about this particular font. I swear I’ve seen it actually written out on paper. It sort of looks like my handwriting when I was in fifth/sixth grade or maybe even middle school, but then again, it doesn’t? Maybe?

Chalk is an excellent writing medium. Eraser makes me incredibly nostalgic about chalkboards.
When I was little, I begged my mom for one because I loved writing on it. I loved hearing the clacking of the chalk against the board, feeling the chalk cover your fingers and trying not to get it all over my overalls, and feeling like you’re the teacher in a bedroom full of stuffed animals.

Ribbon makes me want to find some and wrap everything in sight. That desk light, ribboned. That book, ribboned. Need a hair-tied? Ribboned.
Much like the Metropolis font I showcased last week, this is perfect for titles (not sentences). I love the details— from the forked-tongue ends to the white line in the letters. For some reason, I’m expecting a surprise when I look at it. If I stare at it, a present wrapped up in ribbons will appear, right? ;D
Which font do you like? What about the commentary? Is four a good number of fonts to showcase? Or should I go back to five?
