New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
You know those single-page specimens the kool kidz at foundries gin up to exhibit many variants of a typeface family on the same page? Each line tells a little story and uses its own variation, as seen on the left-hand page of the illustration for David (“Fools!”) Berlow Type Specimens.
But sometimes all the lines put together tell a big story. I have a dim racial memory that one of our number used the lyrics of Duran Duran’s “The Reflex” in exactly this way. False-memory syndrome? If not, who did it? Don’t leave me answered with a question mark here.
