PTL Roletta Sans & Slab | Andrea Tinnes

Yves Peters at the eye blog about «TypoLyrics»:
«This book confirms that great type designers seldom make great graphic designers. Their efforts to present their typefaces as favourably as possible sometimes fall short in the design department – a noteworthy exception being Andrea Tinnes’ brilliant visualisation of the angular, cut-up R&B of Lady Gaga’s ‘Telephone’ featuring Beyoncé.»
