So those who know me know (and those who don’t will quickly find out!) that I love a good typeface. This weekend I happened to catch the documentary “Typeface” on PBS. Gripping, sad, funny and full of love. Just what a movie should be. Find it here!

And now I have an unnaturally strong desire to visit Two Rivers, Wisconsin and roll around in the wood type at the Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum. I think I will wait until the spring thaw though.
