I don’t know if my opinion on the topic is widely accepted, but I get the feeling that titling and display fonts are the ones that really gained in quality over time, thanks to the possibility offered by digital techniques and evolution, such as alternate glyphs. Here is a selection of recent and cool display fonts.
