* When I linked the file from Microsoft Word, the different fonts would not transfer. Sorry.
For my blog post, I decided to take a closer look at fonts and typefaces and see what other people thought about them and where they would be most appropriate. For fun, see what each font makes you think and where each would be most appropriate.

As you can see, and as you probably already know, all typefaces are different. Not all are meant to represent the same situation. Certain fonts, like Baskerville Old Face, are better used for more of a an old, yet still very respectable, piece of work, while fonts like Lucida handwriting are better suited for non-professional , elementary documents- notice how the font is size 12, but is much larger than Baskerville Old Face in size 12 font. I had not really thought about the use/ impact of typefaces until recently, but it’s quite interesting how little notice is given to one of our most popular avenues of communication.
