OK, look. I can think of a thousand better ways to organize fonts than by creating a spoof of the Periodic Table of Elements. But none of them are quite as cool.

The Periodic Table of Typefaces covers a number of major fonts and includes information about the family and classification of each, the designer, the year the font was designed, and a ranking as cribbed from a number of internet sources.

The table might not be quite as entertaining as College Humor’s Font Conference. But if you’re a font wh… enthusiast, it’s still pretty fun to look at. Click the image to see the full sized table.
