We had the typography of Jean-Luc Godard on the brain this morning, and it seems that everyone else did, too. A quick search for this New Wave master revealed a wealth of exciting new online resources of his work. First there are the collections of Godard’s titles and intertitles at the Walker Art Center blog and Movie Title Stills Collection. Then there’s Atelier Carvalho Bernau’s release of The JeanLuc Alphabet, a typeface based on the PDU alphabet, used extensively in Godard’s title sequences. Atelier Carvalho Bernau also links to some other great Godard references, including Laura Forde’s lecture “Jean-Luc Godard’s Critical Appropriation of Graphic Design in the 1960s.”

Loving the vibrant work of Michiel Shuurman on an otherwise gray winter day. His site is currently under construction. Hope an update comes before spring. We’ll need it.
