Matt Robinson and Tom Wrigglesworth compared a selection of the most commonly used typefaces for how economical they are with the amount of ink which they use at the same point size.

The project called, Measuring Type, uses large scale renditions of the typefaces drawn out with ballpoint pens, allowing the remaining ink levels to display the ink efficiency of each typeface.
