The Ampersand

The Typeface Movie

A film called Typeface came out a long while ago, but today I finally got around to watching this when it showed on my local PBS affiliate. There are plenty of ampersands in this film, but the movie is really about typography, finding balance between commerce and art, a dying craft, and much, much more. I know lots of the design nerds that read this blog already know about this movie and museum, but I encourage everyone that hasn’t seen this documentary or looked into the Hamilton Wood Type Museum to check it out.
