Footnotes

Since around 1980, he has used exclusively an angular font he designed and calls Boy Scout Utility Modern (he was a Tenderfoot). “I wanted to come up with a typeface that didn’t have any curves in it,” he said. Then again, a word he likes to paint repeatedly is “so.” “I’ve done it several times,” he said. “I like looking at the word long enough to lose the meaning. It’s the shape of the letters—it gives good shape, that word, real curvy.” ➡︎
