Cool - the bag went for $727, and people paid between $78 and $178! for one of ten copies of the limited edition. All in all, a pretty nice haul.

not any more *yawn* than most things.

On another charity auction front, looks like handwriting is a better bet than typesetting.

perhaps Gary can auction off his production notes...(with skull drawings)

The bag was an especially sweet one.

Sorry Sii, I've been Helveticaed to death. Helvetica numb. And if I read of one more PR stunt from Helvetica I'm going puke eggnog all over my 'puter screen.

Happiness of holidays to you too!

I agree! But thanks to everyone who bid on the benefit auction stuff.

I wonder what typeface we'll be groaning about December 25th, 2008?

Happy Holidays all!

I’m still loving Helvetica. My parents bought me the 1912 ATF specimen book for my birthday, so I showed them Jonathan Hoefler discussing the 1923 edition in the extras so they could have some clue why they just paid $200 for a water-damaged book.
