JAW: Futura by Jordan Harrison

Portland Center Stage

Review by peanutduck

Premise: A la 1984/Farenheit 451, information and “writing” are electronic, changeable, controlled by the Company, thereby nullifying free will. But first section - a stimulating lecture celebrating typography’s socio-political history - doesn’t fit premise or second section, where conflict isn’t about type, but disappearance of physical text, ie, paper and handwriting.

I enjoyed discovering how passionate some of my cohorts are about the fonts they use. I've always been a fan of Papyrus...if anyone else wishes to share their typographic loves.
