Spare Change

Spare Change #020

(I know this didn’t make Monday, but some of us live on different schedules.)

After seeing Avatar for the second time tonight — and thoroughly enjoying it in 3D both times, despite its fairly predictable Hollywood storytelling — I have to complain about the barrage of Papyrus, a rather abysmal design of a typeface. I mean, even the subtitles?! Don’t mention the occasional use of vertical scaling, please.

There’s a rather great letter to James Cameron written from Papyrus over here. (Unfortunately I can’t recall who led me there.)
