Why, what, what for ? For typography and graphical related interests :

Typography is what language looks like. (Ellen Lupton).
I can’t explain it; I just like looking at type. I just get a total kick out of it. Other people look at bottles of wine or whatever, or, you know, girls’ bottoms. I just get kicks out of looking at type. It’s a little worrying, I must admit. (Erik Spiekermann).
Typography is the craft of endowing human language with a durable visual form. (Robert Bringhurst)

iLoveTypography (iLT) may be the best online window to typography. Typocentric WebOL cannot but agree, and has a long memory while enlisting those links out of the former Lavoisy/Net 1.0 :
