I enjoy your website very much, and thought you might be interested in seeing our latest project – Elementar.
Elementar is a parametric bitmap font system designed to bring more typographic flexibility to digital screens. Elementar embraces and explores the unique properties of digital media: the pixel, the coarse resolution grid, and the dimension of time.
Elementar comes with a browser-based Font Navigator for browsing the thousands of available fonts, using sliders to explore different heights, weights and styles of the font system.
Besides the Elementar online interface, Typotheque also offers a free iPad app. The Elementar App is an innovative, intuitive way to select parametric bitmap fonts just by swiping to browse through the thousands of combinations of heights, weights and styles.
Kind regards, Peter Bilak

Explorations in Typography: Mastering the Art of Fine Typesetting (A Visual Textbook for Intermediate to Advanced Typography) is a vast collection of beautiful typesetting examples.
I spent a bit of time playing with the online type tool. Nice to try different fonts, and they have quite a few screen-friendly typefaces that I’d never heard of. Very very well done.
