Helvetica: The Movie
by Erica Sadun
Now the Globe and Mail reports that Helvetica has inspired a new movie about the typeface, its history and its use. (I wouldn't mind catching a showing if it pops by the art theater in town.) Want more? You can read Lars Müller's "Helvetica: Homage to a Typeface" (availabe at Amazon) or pop by Mark Simonson's website to learn about the Scourge of Arial, an Helvetica wannabe, typeface-come-lately.
|there's a piece on Helvetica at the new york MoMA in the design exhibit...Macs are prominently feature there, with the desklamp iMac, the ipod, and snow imacs all making an appearance...|
FYI, the good folks at Veer helped produce this movie and they have excerpts, and a link to the movie's website here:
