It's A Helvetica World

A week ago, the Helvetica movie had a smash New York premiere. Michael Bierut, who stole the show, talks about the film. Just can't get enough Helvetica? Kottke recently held a Helvetica haiku contest. And the MoMA launches a Helvetica exhibition to celebrate the typeface's 50th anniversary and acquisition to the museum (hear that, it's modern art!).

i shot the serif / left him there full of leading / yearning for kerning

She misunderstood / When I said she was 'Grotesque' / Akzidenz happen

I am a sucker for puns.
