    From the newly launched New Metaphor Books:

    Gazing into a crystal ball in 1971 — twenty-nine years ahead of the millennium — architectural thinker Charles Jencks published a provocative entry in Praeger’s Books that Matter series. Applying methods of forecasting developed in the scientific disciplines, Architecture 2000 explores predictions taken both from architectural forecasters and those in related fields.

    An appropriate futuristic use of the obscure Westminster, perhaps the first typeface to alphabetize the MICR aesthetic. Its odd letter widths are owed to the fact that it is based on the proportions of Gill Sans. So British.

    This is one of the funkier timelines I’ve seen.
