font haiku

2007-03-20 15:00:09.062221+00 by Dan Lyke 3 comments

Did you know that there's a feature length documentary on the Helvetica fonts? But what's really cool, is font haiku:

i shot the serif
left him there full of leading
yearning for kerning

And much more.

I'm glad that I'd set my mug down before reading that, or there'd be tea all over the keyboard.

My other favorite was:

I sure like your type
maybe on some page we can
spoon like ligatures

I dunno about Helvetica, but the History Channel could do one on Aldus, inventor of the Italic typeface and the pocket book, 400 years ago. Right after they finish the series on sex toys of the Huns.
