About Face

Fonts and I go way back. From my earliest art school days, typefaces, and all that they convey and represent, have just captivated me. Different typefaces can express different eras, as well as countless moods and personalities. In short, they elevate and illuminate the words on the page.Back in those pre-computer days, before Microsoft Word lived on every desktop, knowledge of fonts was limited to graphic designers, printers and the like, and not yet part of the larger culture. But these days, when I mention Times New Roman or Garamond or Helvetica, people actually know what I’m talking about.
Even though I’m an admitted font snob, I was recently reminded that I still have a lot to learn about my favorite typefaces.

Andy Warhol’s Creative Jeans

    “When it was time to do our television show, Karen Cronin and I had already done a lot of CD packaging and books and side projects together, so I knew that the set for the TV show was just a matter of turning the wheel in yet one more direction. We had one conversation, and I knew Cronin Creative had it covered. I’m spoiled.” – Marty Stuart
