And apropos of John Updike...I had a big response to the "Return of Albertus" discussion. First off: I was not referring to Albertus (Magnus) the Saint, theologian and alchemist. I was referring to the glyphic typeface made by Berthold Wolpe in 1937.

The ever-astute Stephanie Kloss reminded me that Peter Saville used same on New Order albums (see below) so it's a bit of a revival of a revival! She further wonders if Updike is a New Order fan. As Wittgenstein famously said: "Whereof one cannot speak,thereof one must be silent."
