Wonderful movies about typography: "Behind the Typeface" and "Etched in Stone"

On the lighter side: typography inspires VH1 spoof in a Flash animation, Behind the Typeface: Cooper Black.

Response to Link to parody "Behind the Typeface"

What a delight by Cheshire Dave Beckerman! In the Spinal Tap league.

-- Edward Tufte

Consider seeking out Gary Hustwit's documentary, Helvetica, at film festivals this year, the 50th birthday of Helvetica. For a taste, he has some short clips available.

-- Bil Kleb (email)

At the very least, go to the clips section for the above mentioned movie and watch the Wim Crouwel clip. His statements near the end about how the typeface shouldn't interfere with your message fits very well within the discussion that take place here.
