The answer, of course, is “other” — these are some of the best typefaces of 2009, in the opinion of I Love Typography. Another favorite from this set is the amazingly extensive (and expensive) Trilogy, shown below. An interesting selection, worth checking out (the type sample is clickable).

  1. Which is which though?

  2. In the sample shown all of the characters are from the typeface family Trilogy, which includes 103 fonts!

  3. I’m glad I waited for the answer before I jumped in with the wrong response. I could have sworn that these were dogs’ names. I would never have guessed type. But then, given what I know of your interests, I shouldn’t have been surprised.
