After having played around with some font creation software, I found that the differences between the many different fonts to be most intriguing. I thought I would just provide a quick chart explaining the basics of font anatomy. Now realize, this is a pretty basic explanation of the different parts of characters. I could go into much more depth, but I think these basics are a good start. It is not really necessary to know all these names, but knowing them can come in handy if you are ever talking about or explaining an element of a design you may have created. Not only that, but it makes you sound like you know what you are talking about… and now you will! I Hope this little chart I put together helps. Give it a go-over. Remember, knowledge is power!
