Default Helvetica cookies (with yummy comments)

Clever cookie cutters from designer Beverly Hsu, shown here on BoingBoing, for making “delicious, serif-free pastries.” Be sure to read the comments.

Ms Hsu is has tentative plans to manufacture the cutters so any (baking) Helvetica fan can make them at home.

Loved the comments, so much more interesting than those I usually see.

Oh yeah, you typographic experts want Helvetica, but I bet the Comic Sans version outsells it 10:1.

Maybe so.

A wandering thought: I can remember a time when you would have mentioned Souvenir instead of Comic Sans. Whatever happened to Souvenir?

They would be lovely. Were you thinking of rice crackers?

Mmm. Nice crunchy sembe (with their shapes spelling out the sound-words for the sounds they make when you chew them).

Back in the day when souvenir was popular, the average man in the street thought a font was something in the front of a church.

(I remember one newspaper I worked at in the 70s went to it as the text face.)

The man in the street was, of course, right. The OED says it is 'A receptacle, usually of stone, for the water used in the sacrament of baptism'. But the font is usually (always?) at the back of a church, near the entrance.
