I'm catching up with holiday cards (yes, my timing is either very Italian or very pathetic) and finally checked out the brilliant Pentagram holiday greeting, which helps you learn what type you are.

You may have already seen this—especially since Kurt Andersen (rightly) crowed about it in one of he Very Short List entries a while back. Also, the game has set the design world all a'Twitter. I think you'll find it not only a hoot for yourself, but a great exercise to do with your students. The guy (a very thin body type!) who plays the "shrink" is as brilliant as the concept and programming.

This is so great and something I totally would love to play with my students. Now I'm on a wild goose chase to find type specimen pages for all these typefaces!
