    Thanks to Fonts in Use for getting all the extra images! It’s a beautiful catalog.

    The exhibit was put together over a period of years by the catalog’s authors, Catherine Futter and Jason Busch. Catherine is at the Nelson-Atkins Museum here in Kansas City and Jason’s at the Carnegie in Pittsburgh. The show is in Pittsburgh now, then will go to New Orleans and finally Charlotte. Check out the Carnegie museum’s website for more info — and try to see the exhibit!
