As Sting and the Police sing, “Effect without cause / Sub-atomic laws, scientific pause / Synchronicity.” That’s the case with the similarities I encountered this morning. Harvard University Press has published Gary W. Gallagher’s The Union War, and the cover bears striking resemblance to a few of my own TWEED creations.
It’s not a case of copying or even of strong influence. It’s just great minds thinking alike—and sharing a love of the font Futura.
It’s not a bad thing to start my morning, my day, and my week by noticing resonances between my very own TWEED and Harvard University Press. Cheers!
