A good warm-up course for typography. I learned a lot and gained greater insight on fonts and type.

Michael, did an awesome job. He gives you a system for pairing font faces, and if you follow his instructions with your fonts, you'll really nail down why 2 different types of typefaces work or not. Thank you Michael!
