  1. Every time I see this font I automatically start singing the “Family Ties” theme song in my head. I love it :)

  2. I instantly recall the cover of “Where the Sidewalk Ends” by Shel Silverstein.

    On a somewhat related note, have you seen the doc “Helvetica” by Gary Hustwit? It’s a fascinating doc on the typeface, typography, and graphic design in general. I think you’d very much enjoy it.

  3. “monogamus,” should be “monogamous” :-) Sorry for acting as grammar police. Just helping a brother out.

    That said, I admit to shameless monogamous tendencies when it comes to my designs (Avant Garde). I am always trying to move away from it, but often feel powerless to resist it. Sort of like my ex-girlfriend… only her alternate characters aren’t nearly as enjoyable. ;-)

    (love your work, James)


  4. I love Bookman Swash. It’s surprising though, because 95% of my favorite fonts are sans-serif. Yes, it was overused, but it’s got some kind of “lifestyle” cachet to it that makes me believe all sunsets are deep orange.

    By the way, does anyone know where I can get Bookman Swash? I want to use it in some of my designs.
