Iconic typographers caught in action
We have always been fascinated by watching our idols "behind the scenes". We adore them like Holywood stars, and spying on their old photographs makes us feel as detectives focused on every pixel trying to figure out all the little details of the captured scene. God bless internet, but without the analogue world we wouldn't have the pleasure now to wonder: "Is this man actually sketching the typeface which I am typing right now and suddenly appears on my screen?"
