A collection of documentaries on typography
For once that typography is featured on national media, welcome the initiative of France Culture has just put online at: http://nvx.franceculture.fr/sacres-caracteres/ . The radio also devotes this week two shows around the theme: On Docks and creation workshop, Christian Rosset and Gael Gillon.
Sacred Characters! is a series of 12 short films on the great typography. Each film is dedicated to a famous typography, and presents its history and characteristics. It is also the opportunity to discover the often eccentric and obsessive personalities of their creators, and remember that typography is at the heart of culture and civilization. The tone is light and lively. It is a treat!
So this is a great opportunity to review its classics!
