How can one be font-blind?

We were talking about fonts and character last week. (Something which quite a few designers take lightly.) So here's a quick visual tour of what's out there and the magic you can conjure up with the right font. We're using the humble Paint - Microsoft Paint Version 5.1 - here.

There! If a non-designer can opt for so many delicious, crunchy, munchy fonts on Paint, imagine what a designer can do if only he or she would step out to explore the fascinating world of fonts and type and not turn a blind eye to font detailing! As this blog has always maintained, a good start would be a visit to this movie posters portal.
