Do you know your Helvetica from your Arial? If you do, you need to A) get out more and B) buy Type Trumps. Based on the classic game of one-upmanship, this stylish deck of cards is aimed at all you font nerds, design hipsters and typeface freaks because it celebrates the joy of text. As you’ve probably guessed, the idea is to compare the (irrationally ranked) attributes of various famous fonts. You know, things like legibility, cost of ownership and even special powers — which, in the case of Futura, is the fact that Stanley Kubrick was a fan. Each card is written and styled in the relevant typeface so it doubles up as a handy reference next time you’re designing your next masterpiece/wasting time typing party invites on Word.Surely one of the geekiest games, Type Trumps is a brilliant gift for anyone with even a passing interest in typography.
