Periodic Table of Typefaces. for chemistry geeks and type geeks!
Combining the Periodic Table of Elements and the most popular typeface classification system, here is uchi's Typographic Periodic Table. Each style of typeface is defined by their visual characteristics of stroke contrast, serif shape, etc and also their historical development or reference.
Each group in the Periodic Table holds a particular style of typefaces :
Alkali metals hold Venetian typefaces
Alkaline earth metals hold Old Style typefaces (otherwise known as 'Garalde' typefaces) .
Grotesque (or sans serif) type can be found in other metals. Transition metals, aptly hold Transitional (or Neoclassical) typefaces.
Metaloids hold Slab-serif/Egyptian type.
Post transition metals hold 'Didones' (or Modern) class of type.
Halogen gases have Geometric sans serif typefaces whilst the Nobel gases have Humanist sans-serifs.
Lastly, the Lanthanoids and Actinoids elements have a mixture of miscellaneous type styles such as Blackletter, Script and graphic fonts.
A full listing of each element groups and its corresponding type style can be found at http://uchi.co.uk/blog/typographic-periodic-table-of-elements/.

I wanted to combine the Periodic Table with typography in a way that was more than just a random bunch of popular typefaces on the Periodic Table. It had to show the elements in their correct order and groupings at the same time showing the different typefaces in their correct groupings and as close as possible to the historical reference or popular use.
