Little love affair

Chicago, the first font Susan Kare, bitmap graphic designer, created for the Macintosh, in 1983 was originally named Elefont. And San Francisco was Ransom. Steve Jobs decided to name them all after world class cities when he discovered that Susan and Andy Hertzfeld had named them after cities on a train that ran out of Philadelphia, from which they both hailed.

There is no good reason to post this except that I really like the original Mac fonts. I love their sweetness and innocence. They are also pretty darn gorgeous!
