In keeping with this week's typography theme, the goody I've chosen is truly bookmark-worthy. Of course we are all familiar with VH1's popular Behind The Music series -- but what about... Behind The Typeface? This short film is a masterful parody of BTM, featuring the rise, fall, and eventual whirlwind resurgence of Cooper Black's typographic career -- complete with testimonials from Black's friends and relative's. It's so FUN... and so revealing! I mean, who knew that in the 70's, as a result of being swept up in the tempting, decadent world of rock 'n roll, good ol' Coop developed an unfortunate addiction to cocaine?!?. HaHaHa! This little goody will make you wish, like me, that it's creator, Cheshire Dave, would make a whole darn series of these. It's just too, too clever! Happy viewing.
