BACKSTORY: In typography, a typeface (also known as font family) is a set of one or more fonts each composed of glyphs that share common design features.[1] Each font of a typeface has a specific weight, style, condensation, width, slant, italicization, ornamentation, and designer or foundry (and formerly size, in metal fonts). For example, “ITC Garamond Bold Condensed Italic” means the bold, condensed-width, italic version of ITC Garamond. It is a different font from “ITC Garamond Condensed Italic” and “ITC Garamond Bold Condensed”, but all are fonts within the same typeface, “ITC Garamond”. ITC Garamond is a different typeface from “Adobe Garamond” or “Monotype Garamond”. (These are all alternative updates or digitisations of the typeface Garamond, originally created in the 16th century.) There are thousands of different typefacesin existence, with new ones being developed constantly. (SOURCE: Wikipedia)

BACKSTORY: In metal typesetting, a font was a particular size, weight and style of a typeface. Each font was a matched set of type, one piece (called a “sort“) for each glyph, and a typeface consisting of a range of fonts that shared an overall design.

In modern usage, with the advent of digital typography, “font” is frequently synonymous with “typeface”. Each style is in a separate “font file”—for instance, the typeface “Bulmer” may include the fonts “Bulmer roman“, “Bulmer italic“, “Bulmer bold” and “Bulmer extended”—but the term “font” might be applied either to one of these alone or to the whole typeface.

In both traditional typesetting and modern usage, the word “font” refers to the delivery mechanism of the typeface design. In traditional typesetting, the font would be made from metal or wood. Today, the font is a digital file. (SOURCE: Wikipedia)
