I just found the most amazing website in the world. It beautifully combines three of my top five favorite things in life: science fiction, typography, and the Internet. Basically, it here’s a piece dissecting the typography of “Odyssey 2001” (which happens to be one of my favorite books in the world, by Arthur C Clarke, one of my favorite authors in the world).
It dwells on tiny little things like the old IBM logo designed by Paul Rand, one of my favorite designers in the world.
They also have a beautiful piece on typesetting “Alien” on Typeset in the Future.
I strongly recommend reading it.
Really. What an amazing blog. It’s so beautiful.
