Who says typography should be fenced into solely Graphic Design arenas? One of my all-time favourite typographers is fine artist Barbara Kruger, who currently has a show on in London. If you can’t see Paste Up yourself, then at least take this opportunity to re-familiarise yourself with her fantastic use of oblique Futura.
