PsyOps I have always been

I have always been very interested in how images and text have been used to inform individuals about the world. From stained glass windows to the Web, the combination of text and images is extremely powerful. PsyOps (the US military’s term for our propaganda) is extremely fascinating, in part because of its convenience and ease of use and legibility, but also because of its strange playfulness, its slight evility, its characterizations, and its illegitimacy.
I will continue to post links to interesting PsyOps related to Afghanistan. Here is the first link:

Emigre Emigrates I got my

Emigre Emigrates
I got my final publication about a week ago from Emigre, an excellent font shop based in California which occasionally transcends all. Unfortunately, Emigre cannot afford (how did they ever?) to send out free magazines filled with great graphics and design to us font lovers. Oh well. They included in this, last package a new CD by Honey Barbara, which I hated at first and now like very much. Who knew?
I haven’t decided whether or not to “renew” — maybe it should be called “new” — my subscription with them for cash money but it may be worth it. Or maybe I’ll just buy some of their new fonts. I particularly like Filosofia.

Happy New Year all. To

Happy New Year all. To all of you Deckchairs on the Titanic fans (how many of you are there? six? one hundred?), I’d like to wish you a very joyful year full of health and personal successes.
What more is there?
I apologize to one and all for not having had a chance to post the January 2002 Featured Artist, Maddalena Polletta. Trust me, it’s worth waiting for.
In the meantime, I have a slot open and waiting for Feburary 2002. Please let <a href="”>me know if you know of artists that could fit the bill. March through July seem taken care of right now.
In other news, I broke down the other day and bought a new laptop. I expect to completely enjoy it. I also got a new version of Quark Xpress. If you don’t hear from me for a few days, you’ll know why. (That, or my wife will have delivered our baby!)
Again, hope for peace.
