    Here again, 'sluitijzer' is not the proper term, but 'kooi' is, the 'kooien' are being tightened with the 'kooisleutel'.

    We don't call them 'patrijs' in Dutch, but 'stempel' and the person who cuts the punches, is called a 'stempelsnijder'.

    Actually, 'wit' would be better here, 'gerief' indicates spaces from 6 point up. The 'geriefkast' is a typecase holding spaces and quads from 6 to 36 point. In Germany you've got 'Leiste' to hold those spaces.

    Serif [anatomy]

    I’d say no, because I don’t think descending in the rabbit hole of serifs classification would be especially useful here.

    Serif [classification]

    Serif is a font classification category, which includes fonts having serifs (i.e. small strokes regularly attached to the end of a larger strokes).

  15. “We are proud to announce the 2nd edition of our Type@Paris scholarship. You must identify as female and live outside the US, Canada, or EU to apply for a chance to attend Type@Paris 2020 tuition free.”
  16. The "Secret Organization" text appears to be Mattox Shuler's "Gin". The elongated capitals in "Introduction by Neil Patrick Harris" appear to be Shuler's "Bourbon" but his have no swash elements. One of the "The" catchwords is letter Q in HWT Catchwords

    Best fonts for academic papers/writing

    I suppose this list could be extended ad infinitum (or perhaps even ad nauseam), but these options (applicable especially in Linguistics work, or anything that stress-tests Latin Extended, Additional, etc. ranges) should be welcome additions here (and all “free” of one kind or another): Alegreya ht :: Huerta Tipográfica EB Garamond Linguistics Pro | which is based on Slimbach’s Utopia Vollkorn Typeface
