Alien: Typeset in the Future

Dave Addey is at it again with another well documented and thoroughly enjoyable piece on the typography from Alien. Typography, sci-fi, film… this touches on all my favorite things.

In her final recorded message before hypersleep, Ripley notes that she is the sole survivor of the Nostromo. What she forgets to mention is that she has not once in the past two hours encountered any Eurostile Bold Extended.

Also, don’t miss Dave’s previous entries on Eurostile, Moon, and 2001: A Space Odyssey. All are highly recommended.
