If only we could express in words how long and hard the struggle was to learn how to do good typography. We really could have used this wonderful new reference just released by Massimo Vignelli when we were first trying to figure this stuff out.
We may have to change the name of this site to the Neu Green because when we were in school less than a decade ago, you had to buy these kind books (and they were not cheap) assuming you could even find them. You kids these days get everything off the internet for free, like this book, which is beyond awesome.

    I thought the title of this post was “The Vaginal Canon” when I clicked on it from Google Reader. Needless to say when i started reading you lost me at ‘typography’.

    1. If you can find a vag canon I will be sure to post it. I’ll even break out my ping pong paddle.
    2. I’ve seen your typography. Stop whatever you’re doing and read the book ;-)
