Enter the following…

an unusual typographic experiment designed to explore the relationship between graphic design, typography and the reading of a page. [it] collects the responses of 70 international graphic designers when posed with the same brief – to design and lay out the first page of Great Expectations by Charles Dickens, a text chosen in part because it directly references lettering as Pip searches for clues about his family from the letterforms inscribed on their tombstone. The brief encouraged the 70 contributors to explore, challenge or celebrate the conventions of book typography. Each layout is accompanied by a short rationale explaining the designer’s decision-making process.

Fictional magazine covers from Blade Runner... as shown in the blade runner bonus feature "Signs of the Times: Graphic Design". The covers were created by production illustrator Tom Southwell in 1980-1981 and appeared in the background on a magazine stand in the city streets.

Some interesting typographic movie posters


Not all of them are great, but the one for “Stand by Me” reminds me of a piece of mine ;-)

Prompted by Altaira's new year's kawai wish card (http://typophile.com/node/65762), and by Hrant's quiz about the glyph used for the trees, I was reminded of one of my all time favourite calligraphy/typography posters.
