Coupland and Helvetica

Douglas Coupland last night at the Bloomsbury theatre in London (at what he said was probably his last ever book reading):

...and someone said making a film about Helvetica is like making a film about off-white paint.

For more of his thoughts on the typeface, also see this piece in the New York Times.

    But one man's medicine...

  2. saw that film. fascinating
