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!

So do check out The Union War, published just this month.
