Type Matters

Nice letter to Brad Bird of Pixar from Matthew Butterick on the use of the font Verdana in the latest Mission Impossible movie.

"Verdana is a Microsoft font designed in 1996 designed to optimize the legibility of small text on low resolution computer screens. It wasn't intended for large size text on high resolution movie screens."
