Off Book | Typography by PBS Arts
Estimate time to read this page: 2 – 2 minutes
Featuring: Jonathan Hoefler, Tobias Frere-Jones, Paula Scher, Eddie Opara, Julia Vasker, Deroy Peraza
There’s a sweet little mini-documentary floating around the Internet about typography, its use, and it’s public profile. There’s really no new content here, especially if you’ve seen Gary Hustwit’s Helvetica, but that doesn’t make it any less entertaining. Plus, to my recollection, Gary’s doc doesn’t have Jonathan and Tobias from H&FJ, or Eddie Opara in it, and I always like to see new interviews with people I haven’t seen before. It’s only fitting that the fine gents from Hoefler & Frere-Jones are in it, given that they’ve designed some of the most influential, beautiful, and unfortunately overexposed typefaces of the last, I dunno, 5-10 years?
I’ve embedded the video below for your convenience. Have a look.
Anyone want to set me straight?
