for all those font geeks like me, this should prove to be interesting: helvetica is a feature-length independent film about typography, graphic design and global visual culture. screening at film festivals worldwide starting in early 2007.

Sounds cool! It's hard to find people who understand the obsession. I remember I had a House Industries catalog while visiting my in-laws ... I was on the couch flipping through, and my ditsy sister-in-law came over to see what magazine I was looking at (so we could bond over fashion? Sex tips? gah) and she totally mocked me.

I'm a type geek as well. People just don't get it, do they? This movie sounds interesting. I'll have to check it out.

Hey Jan! It's been a while, hasn't it? We've been so busy lately....
