    This homage to Foxy Brown, the 1974 blaxploitation film, presumably uses Cabernet, an uncredited digital replica of Benguiat Caslon. The photomontage on the main poster is very impressive. Unfortunately, the type treatment is less so, with some major unevenness in the spacing (e.g. ‘ou’ tight, ‘ry’ loose). Still, there’s no doubt this campaign captures the historical reference and the intended mood; the story is about a tough-as-nails hitwoman working for an organized crime family.
