maybe for you little kids with yer computers. but, for us old fucks with the old knowledge of the old ways, grasshopper, they are typefaces, not fonts. a font is a set of every character of a particular typeface design (including lower case and punctuation marks) in a particluar pint size. subtle, but different.
old lead type guys called those big heavy cases filled with the brass moulds for the typefaces "font cases". get it? they each carried one font of a particular typeface in a particular point size.
rob zombie is not very bright. at least that's what i've noticed. he contacted a label i was working with asking if he could get in touch with one of their bands. he wanted to put one of their singles on a compilation record because they had a scary monstery-sounding name. he was so blind and out of it (and dumb?) that he didn't even know the band in question had a member of his own band, white zombie, in the line-up. the band had been around a couple of years, too.
not bright, or perhaps too important to be well-informed. dunno.
apparently 'gaspipe' was also a typeface in certain circles in them old days, too. i've seen this face listed as 'gaspipe' in several old type books (but ususally called 'futura poster' or 'futura display', even though it looks nothing like futura at all as far as i can see.). but i have also heard of dan's reference as well.
hell, kid these days think "pica" is a typeface. actually, them kids use the word "font" when they mean typeface, largely because that's what they were told by some geeky dude who set up this current design system on the magic box. so, go figger, eh? (a font is actualy not a typeface at all. but, who cares anymore? the computers guys? nah.)
paul - experiment? i'll experiment on yer sorry soul, sonny.... (evil laughter erupts from the shadows)
and anybody who thinks this is a good poster has no taste at all (and design is nothing but taste, right?) it's awful - no sense of scale and retarded color. it's too literal and has nothing to do with the band. b&w sux, too.
