i didn't want to hijack lickthestar's thread, but i was going to post this as a response to mjp's post about graphic design vs. typesetting... is anyone here familiar with massin? he did typography for a bunch of french books in the mid-late 20th century (raymond queneau, ionesco, jean cocteau, and others), and he's an absolute genius, in my opinion. his books are so goddamn beautiful... phaidon has a great english-language retrospective of his work that was published recently. i went on a kick recently and bought a 1st edition of his version of queneau's exercises de style, and i just got cocteau's les maries de la tour eiffel and queneau's cent mille milliards de poemes today. i'm in typography heaven.
