Don’t get me wrong, it’s a beautiful typeface — quickly becoming my favourite and my new default (sorry Avenir) — but with it’s new found chic I’m afraid it will soon go the way of Helvetica: beautiful, functional, and overused.
That isn’t to say I won’t stop using it… though perhaps I’ll have to stick to its smother little brother, Gotham Rounded.
I just hope it’s a passing phase, and that it doesn’t become ubiquitous like the previously mentioned Helvetica because it’s just too gosh-darned nice to become hated. And if it does? Well, I guess I can always go crawling back to Avenir.
Originally released on 20th Century Fox Records Ulysses, The Greek Suite was 20th’s largest musical acquisition of that year, and now one of the most sought-after record albums of its kind. The double album stars Ted Neeley from Jesus Christ Superstar fame. Ted Neeley’s superb vocal style that has made him known the world over. He is joined by the beautiful voice of Yvonne Iverson and the hard driving rock group A-440 join in this musical adaptation of Homer’s classic Greek tale The Odyssey.
