Linkage

Not my type?


Whoever is compiling Ace’s sidebar this week resurrected this 2010 discussion over at Ed Driscoll’s about Helvetica- the typeface and the movie.  The title - Liberal Fascism: The Font - summarizes it pretty well, but any post that ties together Tom Wolfe, Mies van der Rohe, the Nazis, Mad Men, Amtrak, and Form 1040 is worth reading all the way through.  And don’t miss the comments.

One wonders how the late-twentieth-century would have looked had the London Passenger Transport Board been less protective of its Johnston Sans.
