reading...

just checked out 2 books from Jen Library (SCAD's library) today.

Alexander Lawson's "Anatomy of a Typeface" (ISBN 0-87923-333-8) & Walter Tracy's "Letters of Credit, A View of Type Design" (ISBN 1-56792-240-6)

I am very excited about studying the how and why of some of the most recognized and appreciated typefaces to date.
I will post the highlights when I've finished and hopefully some new type ideas as well

J. Crew logo

the J. Crew winter 2010 catalog came in the mail a few days ago and I noticed something different about the J. Crew logo.

First, this is what I am familiar with:
www.jcrew.com

Here is the catalog and a close up of the 'new' logo
the "J" in question is now no longer represented with a descender.
I much prefer the "J" on the website but wonder how and why this one was printed and shipped across America (and the world).
thoughts?
