Fontshop's Twenty Typefaces of 2008

This time of year has me particularly excited because somewhere between December and January the best of typefaces lists appear and while not exactly a gift under the tree (buying them would be) they are wonderful additions to my typefaces wish list.

So, here are a few of Fontshop's Top Twenty Typefaces of 2008 and my favorites from the list. And thank you Fontshop for releasing a manageable list.

Update From FontShop 12.10.2008:

 

We tried to keep this list to 20, but we couldn’t help ourselves. Three more groundbreaking typefaces added: FF Tisa, FF Pitu, and FF Chambers Sans. Demo all the honorees on a single page.
