    I mentioned this documentary about type design in an earlier thread but the movie's out.

    Hustwit's film has already been shown to sold-out audiences in Austin, Dallas, Zurich, Prague, Istanbul, New York, Providence and Boston. It will get its Canadian debut at the Hot Docs festival in Toronto on Saturday. It's also set to screen at the Logo Cities symposium at Concordia University in Montreal on May 5, and will be shown in Calgary later that month

    Didn't know that Helvetica turns fifty this year.

    I use Arial Black quite a bit for my special sections, in the folio and on the covers.

    Some of my students saw this at South-by and said it was really interesting.

    Please resume font jokes now.

    Sir, I'm not tracking what you're saying. Perhaps you could trim a few words and shorten it up for me.
