In Defense of Papyrus: Your Guide for When to Use Despised Fonts
Keith A. Spencer

I’m completely over font snobbery. Papyrus is one of the most beautiful and elegant fonts ever created. Font snobs throw around words like “kitschy” and “overused,” sounding like teenagers who are constantly bored and need a new adrenaline fix to stop the whining. I assume these are the same folks who stand in line for the latest iPhone, just so they can be on the cutting edge of nothing.

Sure, if a font is difficult to read or mixes casual styles in formal settings it can seem out of place, like wearing comfortable sandals or trendy, shredded jeans to a high mass wedding. But there is nothing intrinsically wrong with the fonts themselves. People bash fonts like they bash art they don’t like. Just because YOU don’t like it doesn’t mean everyone else has to avoid it.
