Helvetica Mea Culpa

I posted a throwaway a few days ago, implying that it was a bit silly to be watching Helvetica (2007) on Blu-ray.

How silly of me. Typography is all about precision and detail. Of course it makes a big difference to watch a film about design in a crisp high-resolution “print”, and Blu-ray on a high-def screen is the best game in town for that sort of thing now.

The film is great, anyway, for anyone who’s ever had even the slightest interest in 20th century design. Highly recommended.
