A love letter to the cherished font.

Helvetica is a sans-serif font with a simple and clean design. It is commonly used in advertising, signage, and literature. The R's leg curves, while the i and j have square dots. The Q's tail is angled straight, and the O, Q, and C have oval counterforms. This all-purpose type design can clearly and efficiently convey any message. It is considered one of the most popular typefaces of all time. Helvetica: Homage to a Typeface showcases 400 examples of its use, selected from two contrasting worlds. It features stunning applications by renowned designers alongside an anonymous collection of both clever and questionable examples.
