It is safe to say that I am slightly obsessed with the AMC show Mad Men. It is also safe to say that I am slightly obsessed with Typography. The always interesting designer and blogger Mark Simonson recently wrote an excellent post about the Typography of Mad Men. Swoon, I say, swoon.

Read Mark's raves and boos about the type usage in the show…his attention to type history is amazing and through his observations he engages me in this show even more (I didn't think that was possible).

He even gets a dig in against ariel. excellent. You can read more about that here.

His entire blog is relevant and fun to read. I especially enjoy his Son of Typecasting posts where he explores more usages of typography in Hollywood.

thanks Brittany for the link!
