Linkage equilibrium

The other day Alan (by way of Daring Fireball) sent me two great typography links.

  • 50 Years of Helvetica: An exhibit at the New York City Museum of Modern Art (2007/04/06 through 2008/03/31).  I'm not a big fan of Helvetica, but I should probably check this out regardless.  Apparently it is »the first typeface acquired for MoMA's collection«.  Among other things there is a showing of the Helvetica film I mentioned previously. Maybe I can get Brian to remind me how we got there last time for Pixar exhbit.
  • Iranian Typography Now: A nice introduction to calligraphy and typography in Farsi along with some history and a number of great images.

    Getting to the MoMA wasn’t that hard if I remember correctly. Get to NY Penn Station somehow, then take one of the subway lines (I’d guess either the A, C, or E, since I think the 1, 2, and 3 go in the wrong direction) from there for a few stops.

    I should visit NYC more often. I can’t remember if there were other exhibits at the MoMA that I wanted to see…
