Now that the second installment of the Winter Arts Preview is safely stored on our server in .pdf format, The Independent‘s editorial and production teams can breathe a sigh of relief, and stop (but not for long!) to wonder at the fact that newspaper publishing was once done by hand. A new documentary film from Gary Hustwit-Helvetica, screening at Campbell Hall on February 6-explores the life and times of the original modern super-font, beloved by font geeks worldwide. The Swiss-born, sans serif typeface Helvetica says “urban culture” in as many languages as there are cities. In this image, Manfred Schulz sets traditional metal Helvetica by hand in Frankfurt, Germany.
Gary Hustwit's, Helvetica shows at UCSB.
