I'd never come across Bembo, and just looked it up and it is very pleasing. Extremely comforting, somehow, like a museum. I then investigated and the National Gallery in London (where I spent hours as a kid) uses it for its publications, so perhaps that's why I find it soothing. I like Gill Sans for similar reasons (London tube map).

Most of the writing I do is film scripts, which is even more restrictive than appellate courts: only courier allowed! I kind of love courier though, in a gross way. There's something honest about it.

True enough. Have you seen Courier Prime?
