What is the best way for me to learn to choose creative fonts for my pages? I found a book
called Type Cast by Memory Makers. It only has two reviews though. I don't know of any classes that cover this topic.

Can someone recommend a book or class that would be helpful?

Thank you.

lookup typography and you should probably find alot of stuff on fonts and such.

some rules from art school ... only mix serif and san serif fonts. alot of the "free" fonts out there are for titles not text. you want your text to be easily readable. and you can always break the rules.
