Typographic World News

It’s been a remarkably busy typographic news week. First, we hear that the letters of the famous Hollywood sign are decaying due to global warming.

Then, we learn that Erik Spiekermann has been knighted by Queen Elizabeth II.

In related news, today is also the 8th anniversary of The Guardian‘s “Return to San Seriffe” article. For more about this amazing island nation, see Wikipedia.

On a day like this, I start to think anything is possible!
