As far as I can remember, ITC Officina Serif was my first favourite typeface. Until I was 19 years old, I used typefaces that was pre-installed on my Windows computer. I mostly made websites, with Verdana, Tahoma, and Arial as the only tools I could use.
In school, studying design, my views broaden. We read the book Stop Stealing Sheep & Find Out How Type Works by Erik Spiekermann, my first introduction to type design. And somehow, Officina Serif caught my eye. And typography caught my attention.
I still have a soft spot for slab serifs.
