Font haiku

To mark the release of the film Helvetica ("a feature-length independent film about typography, graphic design and global visual culture"), Extensis ("professional font management") is sponsoring a font-related haiku contest. My entry:

In ink, on paper,

words, letters, echo, quarrel:

"Sans serif!" "Serif!"

I'm intrigued - a movie about typography??!

Yes! I'm hoping for a screening within driving distance, but I suspect that I'll be waiting for the DVD to show up in my college library.

Check the film website (the link is in the post) -- there's a screening in Melbourne this summer, and new cities and dates are still being added.
