iPad Typography

Stephen Coles (via Lukas Mathis):

Apple has made some puzzling decisions over the last few years that leave one wondering if they really care about typography as much as they did in the 1980s when the Mac launched the desktop publishing revolution. As recently as 2005, Steve Jobs made typography a central theme of his commencement address to Stanford grads, but his actions as the almighty head of Apple haven’t followed suit.

From Lucida italic to Marker Felt, to the strange choices in iBooks, the contrast with Microsoft’s recent font work is striking.
